Truth Revealed

Once there was a princess born with a sacred light,
It shown within her countenance beautiful and bright.
Living here upon the earth she was surrounded by the dark,
Often the days of her journey were sad, alone and stark.
Many chose to hurt her adding a layer of pain to her soul,
The hurt of all her adversity diminished her precious glow.
Day by day she journeyed weighed down by all she had known,
The light of her divinity, was now a pain that darkly shown.
Until one day she heard a voice call her name and say,
My daughter you’re not alone I will help you find your way.
Take courage and speak up; reveal what was done,
Remove the layer of darkness and peace will be won.
Take courage and believe that the truth will set you free,
Healing is found as you have faith and put your trust in me.
This princess was so quiet and felt afraid to speak her pain,
Yet the voice of her Redeemer had shown what she could gain.
Kneeling in prayer she whispered I want to find relief,
Please strengthen me my Father, help thou my unbelief.
Her God sent angels and a power that was not hers alone,
She had the strength she needed and she made her secret known.
As she spoke the truth of all that was done,
The darkness diminished and she felt the peace of the Son.
The healing began as action was taken with great care,
To bless and heal this princess of light, from all that was unfair.
The light of her divinity grew brighter as she healed,
The light that she was born with was no longer concealed.
Smiling at His daughter God turned to His Son,
You are the strength of her broke heart, look what you have done.
For now as they viewed her, the layers of pain and hurt were gone,
Her sacred light now shown like the brightness of the Sun!

To Heal the Shattering Consequences of Abuse

I am so grateful for Richard G. Scott and the tender inspired way he addressed the issue of abuse in this talk. He said, "If you are currently being abused or have been in the past, find the courage to seek help. You may have been severely threatened or caused to fear so that you would not reveal the abuse. Have the courage to act now. Seek the support of someone you can trust. Your bishop or stake president can give you valuable counsel and help you with the civil authorities. Explain how you have been abused and identify who has done it. Ask for protection. Your action may help others avoid becoming innocent victims, with the consequent suffering. Get help now. Do not fear—for fear is a tool Satan will use to keep you suffering. The Lord will help you, but you must reach out for that help."

I testify that Richard G. Scott's counsel is true. Victims of abuse need to seek help and find the courage to speak up. I pray that anyone seeking for the strength to reveal abuse will begin with prayer. God can and will send angels to your side to strengthen you. Ask for courage, ask for the spirit, ask for angels to be with you as you speak the truth. I testify that your Savior Jesus Christ understands your feelings of fear, hurt, and heartbreak. He has born all of your burdens and he knows them intimately. Please remember you're not alone. The Savior's grace will heal and strengthen you. The path to your new beginning and healing starts with speaking the truth. I bear witness that help, healing and joy are found as we turn in faith to our Savior, and act in courage to make right what is wrong. By speaking out you are standing as a witness of Christ. Revealing the wrong of abuse is a clear witness against it. It is my hope and prayer that all victims of sexual abuse will pursue the path of healing. I testify that heaven will stand with you as you find the courage to speak the truth.

Mended!

To any precious daughter of God that has or is suffering from abuse I send my love and encouragement. You're of infinite worth. Your Father prepares a mansion for you. Don't let someone else's evil acts against you, diminish the truth of all you can be. "We are daughters of our Heavenly Father who loves us." Never forget He loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son. May the truth of that love help you find the courage to stand and speak. I testify that true healing is found as the truth is revealed.
