Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Updated: Jan 11

Happy New Month, Lavenders. Welcome to April 2021. I am so glad and excited for this month. Great things are ahead of us this month. As many of you may know, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This month is the 20th Anniversary of the recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness. This blog is devoted to the cause. I hope you enjoy it. As always, remember to like, share, comment, and subscribe. Have a great rest of your day and weekend. 

Sexual Abuse, Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment. These are all topics that are too sensitive to talk about, but I had to. I watched a movie titled "Citation" in late November that got me thinking about these topics. I did not know where to approach this blog, so I started with the basics. 

Often, when we hear cases of sexual assault, the victim is always a female, and the suspect is a male. We rarely hear of stories where females rape or assault males, but there are cases such as this around the world. There is a massive stigma on rape and human trafficking victims that comes not only from society but also within themselves. I do not know people who have been victims of rape or sexual assault, but I know that an individual's experience should not define them.

One experience can traumatize a person. One experience can make a person lose their self-identity. One experience can cause a person to lose their self-respect. One experience can redefine an individual's name. Young females are very vulnerable to being victims, and it breaks my heart. Females already have more than enough working against them. 

There are countries around the world where young females are more likely to be victims than in other parts of the world. The female body is a treasure God made for various reasons, such as reproduction. A female should have control over her body and her choices will her body. 1 Corinthians 6:19 says, "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own". I know that many young females love themselves and respect themselves. To respect yourself means to respect your body. Most of the time, the victim is not in the wrong; they just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you are a victim of sexual assault, harassment, abuse, etc, or if you know someone who falls into these categories, I want you to know that I pray for you every day. I think of you very often. I pray to God to heal, change, and give you a new name. Your experience does not have to define you. I know you have or might have lost a part of yourself. Still, I want you to know that Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." As we enter this new month of April, it might be sensitive for you to talk about your experience. Still, I was hoping you could talk about it. Some of you may feel uncomfortable or even traumatized reliving the experience, but it helps bring awareness to this issue. 

For those who cannot relate to this issue, I encourage you to be sensitive to those who have experienced this in one way or another. The Bible instructs us to love our neighbors as ourselves. You can say a word of prayer or try to connect with individuals who fall into these categories. Spreading awareness makes a huge difference, and it goes a long way than, you know. 

Thank you so much for reading. God Bless You Greatly. I hope you have a great rest of your day and a blessed weekend. 🥰🥰🥰. If you have been a victim of any of these and you feel comfortable reaching out to me through my email: I am more than happy to hear your story and give some encouragement. :)
