Shrader explains that around the world and in our own community, women and girls often suffer from violence, shame, sexual exploitation, feelings of unworthiness, anger and resentment. This occurs even toward others who are often members of their own family.
Rejuvenating women is a community of people dedicated to breaking down barriers of shame and guilt. They accomplish this by raising awareness of the power and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Through His love and grace, they too can overcome their past and inspire others. Rejuvenating Women is founded on God and puts Jesus in the center of all that they do. They focus on the power of Christ’s forgiveness that He gives to us and we are to extend that same forgiveness to others. The Bible is clear on the issue of forgiveness and how crucial it is for us to forgive those whom have hurt us and caused deep wounds in our hearts. Shrader explains we may get angry and feel like getting revenge, but God says to NOT sin in your anger and HE will get revenge, it is not up to us to do. Shrader believes women need to step out in faith and let God fight for us.
“And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” – Mark 11:25
The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit comes into our heart and begins to change us and that our sins will be washed away clean and white as snow.
“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.” – Ephesians 1:13
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. – Isaiah 1:18
Rejuvenating Women also works to increase community awareness and coordinate the identification of human trafficking, assist in community education, advocacy, provision of culturally and linguistically sensitive victim services, and efforts to ensure the investigation and prosecution of human traffickers. Rejuvenating women provides a Bible-based context, in which women trapped in modern day slavery and/or survivors of human trafficking are given HOPE, safety, anonymity, security and freedom. Shrader has worked diligently to partner with government agencies and community organizations; including the FBI, International Justice Mission (IJM) and the Lydia House, in order to better support and help prostituted women and girls escaping violence.
It is Julie’s hope that women will be able to face their past hurts and mistakes and learn how to forgive. She believes when we can come to a place of confession and forgiveness, the healing process begins. Forgiveness is a gift if you are willing to confess it and receive it. It is there that you may start living a life of emotional freedom and a life that God intends for you to live.
“Forgiven people must be forgiving people.”
