They Meant it for Evil
They Meant It For Evil
by Lucinda Pennington
What do you do when the very people who are supposed to love and protect you are the ones who hurt you?
Lucinda Pennington suffered unimaginable abuse as a child. Left by her mother at the hospital at three days old, Lucinda became a ward of the state, entering Maine's foster care system. While in foster care, she was physically, mentally, and sexually abused by the very people who were meant to care for her. She was sexually abused at the hands of her foster brother; starved, beaten, and locked up by her foster parents; and ignored by her social worker. Unfortunately, she suffered the same fate at each foster home thereafter and even after she was adopted. But through it all, there was one who never hurt her: God, her heavenly Father. He gave her hope.
Now, as a grown woman, Lucinda's faith has helped her overcome her past, and in They Meant It for Evil, she encourages those who have suffered abuse to take a step toward healing. God can help you turn what was meant as evil in your life. Allow Him to use you and turn what was meant for evil into something good for Him. Show your abusers they did not ruin your life! Your abusers no longer have this power over you! Stand up and be proud you are a survivor!
