I’m so sorry you’re hurting today.
I wrote the original blog article about faith years ago.
However, anytime I think of the hope and encouragement I want to pass on to those who struggle with fears about Halloween, or the ritualized darkness surrounding the Easter week, I think of this post.
Hold tight to your faith — your strength, and your healing, and your connection to goodness, kindness, love, and light is obvious.
I understand how the darkness can feel so incredibly overwhelming, especially on nights like Halloween. Or for those who have survived the horrors of ritual abuse during Easter week. Some of those horrors go beyond comprehension.
But you’re here now. And you’re reading. And you’ve found a place where people understand what you’ve endured.
So find your faith spot. You have one. Tucked deep deep down inside. It’s gotten you through so much more than you may realize. I know it has, because while so many of you had to dance with evil, you didn’t become evil. You maybe had to appear that you joined in, but in your heart and soul, you did not.
Be careful to not believe the lies of the dark. You were not born bad. You did not deserve the pain you were given. There is and was no need to punish you into smitherines.
Your faith is strong.
Find it, and hold tight.
Thinking of you….
