Many years ago, as I encountered some difficult situations, a wise friend suggested that I start asking God “what can I learn from this?” rather than questioning why it was happening. What he was offering me was a change in perspective.
I’ve come to realize that we often need a shift in perspective. One of the responsibilities I have at She’s Somebody’s Daughter is awareness. With awareness we seek to shift peoples’ perspective regarding trafficking and sexual exploitation. We want women to be seen as people with value, not objects for gratification. We desire for everyone to see women working in the commercial sex industry as women to be loved.
Change in perspective comes through education. God continues to teach me that this is a process. Thought processes and perspectives do not change overnight. And so I’ll continue to educate, both formally and informally, as I’m given opportunity.
Would you join us in praying this month for continued opportunities to provide awareness and shift perspective in our community? Pray with us that, as awareness increases, so also will our ability to see those that are most vulnerable and at risk. And with awareness will come resolve to speak out.
