Words have the power of life and death. On this new blogger layout when you look at comments the list of all of then show up in chronological order. When they do for this blog this was one of the the last comments. Perhaps the last posting of a fully open heart as well. Seeing that it silenced me back then makes sense. Seeing that it was posted by an anonymous commenter also makes sense. They usually are hidden behind the harm they do. Not hidden from God however he sees them. He knows their hearts or lack there of.
Silencing is the motive and it worked for a while didn't it? Stepping away from those silencers in our own lives is so important. Loving them may never stop but protecting truth must be stronger than the silencing arts of guilt or ignorance whatever the motives may be behind those who would to silence us.
So in answer to the comment, YES this was written by a child, one who lived inside of me in my expression. IT is the testimony of a child and in the excruciating pain of telling it did this child speak out. I was not an adult when I lived it, but a child. Yet as an adult to put this experience out there was one of the most courageous things I had ever done. Your unkindness was the reward of it. So I stopped writing to silence you. I can not allow that to occur. I will tell. I will expose the works done. Children now living need our voices out there.
