57 – Mistreatment

Sarah was a young woman who had been through a lot in her life. She had been abused by her father as a child, and she had been abandoned by her mother when she was 16 years old. She had also been in and out of foster homes, and she had never really known what it was like to have a loving family.

Sarah was angry and bitter, and she didn’t believe that anyone could love her. She thought that she was all alone in the world, and she didn’t see any hope for the future.

One day, Sarah was walking down the street when she saw a sign for a church. She had never been to church before, but she was feeling lost and alone, so she decided to go in.

When she got to the church, she was greeted by a friendly woman who introduced herself as Maria. Maria invited Sarah to sit down and talk, and Sarah told her about her life. Maria listened patiently, and she didn’t judge Sarah.

Maria told Sarah about God’s love and forgiveness, and she shared the story of Jesus Christ. Sarah had never heard about Jesus before, but she was intrigued by what Maria had to say.

Sarah started to come to church more often, and she began to learn more about God’s love. She started to let go of her anger and bitterness, and she began to experience God’s peace and joy.

Sarah eventually met a man at church, and they fell in love. They got married, and they had a family. Sarah was finally happy, and she knew that it was all because of God’s love and forgiveness.

Sarah’s story is a reminder that God loves us unconditionally, and that He is always there for us, no matter what. No matter what we have done, God is always willing to forgive us and give us a new start.

“Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance?¬†You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.”

Micah 7:18
