Glimmers of Grace: Moments of Peace and Healing Following Sexual Abuse

In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we are delighted to listen in to Johnette Williams show, Women of Grace on EWTN.

Faith Hakesley, author of the book, Glimmers of Grace: Moments of Peace and Healing Following Sexual Abuse and associate of the Ruth Institute shares with us very helpful insights on healing after sexual abuse.

Many of today are wounded from the Sexual Revolution and today we have the chance to hear from one of Ruth Institute’s experts on what to do after being sexually abused.

Hakesley tells us that healing is not linear and not typical. It is life-long and may pop up again in the future and may need to be handled differently at different times in life. But that is okay, because God has glimmers of grace in store for the suffering soul.

Glimmers of grace from God are opportunities, moments or events that God sends or causes that allows the soul to taste peace even if for a moment. They are unique to the individual and are helpful to souls suffering from abuse.

Glimmers of grace lead to gratitude for what you already have, and Hakesley insists that this is an important component of any healing process: gratitude!

Suffering, as Hakesley astutely points out, is a result of original sin, and we do not live in a perfect world.

“Jesus never promised we would never suffer; He promised He would be with us forever and that He would suffer with us… even though sometimes we may not feel His presence.”

Hakesley adds, “trauma rewires the brain – [after trauma there is a] need to retrain the brain to view the world [correctly].”

Hakelsey also points out the difference between a victim and a survivor, which impacts a person’s self-worth and identity. You will want to hear her wise words on how to stop being a victim and how to truly live (survivor).
