In a time of crisis, most people feel overwhelmed by many emotions: confusion, fear, anger, guilt, shame, doubt, depression, hopelessness, anxiety and more. When the crisis involved abuse (physical, emotional, verbal, financial or sexual) the victim usually feels completely alone. Often victims are afraid or embarrassed to tell anyone; they fear no one will understand. They may think God has abandoned them. But God is there to offer strength and guidance.
