Dysfunctional relationships distort our view of God, but God makes a way to clear our spiritual vision

Life is Tough, But God Always Makes a Way

So many of us have grown up in dysfunctional families.  Many of us have suffered abuse at the hands (literally) or through the mouth of our physical fathers and other family members.  How, then, can we see God as He is and not expect Him to be like those who have either given us wrong examples or abused us sexually, physically, emotionally or spiritually?
