But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6 kjv)

Fairly recently, two pastors local to the city that I live in were arrested and charged with sex trafficking a teenage girl.  Fast forward to today, months later from the when the first arrests were made, and come to find out, a third pastor has been charged with his own alleged involvement with the same case.

Such jaw dropping news spreads fast, and so does opinions.  I can only imagine what the families of the accused feel when being hit with such serious charges.  I feel so sorry for those who were blindsided and also the victims.  I’ve also often wondered how church members deal with the news of finding out their pastor could really be a pedophile, and/or a sex trafficker.

Do you trust your intuition?

For a very long time, I had not.  There have been many situations both big and quite small – where something deep inside of me would say “Tenille, stop… something is not right” or “Tenille, they are lying” and I’ll go ahead and finish what I was doing or I chose to believe a person anyway.  I can feel the words deep inside of my heart and also in my mind, actually causing me to pause and have second and third thoughts about whatever situation that I am in at that moment. Years later, I would find out that my intuition was right for every single one of those times, looking after my well-being while my naivety did otherwise. View Post
