#metoo 📚Excerpt from upcoming book coming soon: "Within a couple of hours, as time passed, he entered my room, silently and secretively as a lion would his prey. I tried to play like I was sleep, but he woke me. He asked if I was ok and apologized for the way my mother spoke to me earlier. I just replied with a smile because truthfully, I didn’t’ even understand her statement as a 7yr old. Then he proceeded to tell me everything was ok and that I could trust him.
At that moment, I began to feel the same confusion I did when my mother disciplined me for the way I interacted with her “man.” He began to hug me and touch me softly on my face. The thoughts of fatherly love softly warmed my heart. The feelings of concern drifted away as I knew he was there to protect me… so I thought.
What happened after that innocent moment was that thing that haunted me for many years afterwards. That moment of disgust later became the result of childhood nightmares, the fighting in school, loss of self-worth, confusion, hatred, adult male trust issues, which all propelled and played a part of a life of ridiculous faith.
Yes, the ugliest moments in my life became one of the forefront reasons I had ridiculous faith in knowing God had more in store for me and I wasn’t going to stop believing until I saw it come to pass."
