Understanding the Impact of Trauma: How to Begin Healing from PTSD

Trauma is a psychological reaction to a dreadful event that can have a lasting impact on a person's emotional and mental well-being. The internalization of traumatic experiences can hinder our ability to heal and mature emotionally. If we remain in a state of anxiety for an extended period of time, it can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


One of the primary sources of trauma is emotional abuse. This, along with physical assault, sexual assault, sudden death of a loved one, even natural disasters, or witnessing a crime, are some of the sources of trauma.


Here are some of the symptoms of PTSD: Being easily startled. Feeling tense, on guard, or on edge. Having difficulty concentrating. (sounds like me a lot of days, LOL) Having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Feeling irritable and having angry or aggressive outbursts. Engaging in reckless or destructive behavior.


Today, we “annihilate” trauma and its side effects. We are breaking the cycle of damage remaining in our souls.

 


 

LET’S DEAL WITH IT!

1. LIKE EVERYTHING, WE NEED TO TAKE OUR STRESS, FEARS, WORRIES, AND ANXIETIES TO GOD BECAUSE HE CARES FOR US.

"Cast all your anxiety, worry and cares on Him, because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7. One translation says: "Roll it over on Him."

 

2. FEEL IT. REVEAL IT. HEAL IT.

Acknowledge your pain. It's OK. Identify where trauma has occurred. Admitting our sins is the easy part, and Jesus’ blood has washed all our sins away. But admitting where you are hurting in the deepest places is where healing can begin.

 

3. WE MUST LOOK AT THE BIBLE DIFFERENTLY—SEE IT AS A CURE, NOT A COMMAND.

As the soul cures, obedience to God is the reflex of a healthy soul. The Bible is a cure, a scalpel to carefully open the soul and create a path, a roadmap to soul health.

 

4. FLOOD YOUR MIND WITH THESE HEALING PROMISES:

  • Proverbs 12:25 (NKJV): "Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad."

  • Jeremiah 17:14: "Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for You are my praise."

  • Jeremiah 30:17: "For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord."

  • Psalm 147:3: "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

 

5. JESUS IS THE HEALER OF TRAUMA AND THE TRAUMATIZED HEART.

In Luke 4:18–19, he said, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, and He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. And To HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED…"

 

LET’S PRAYER TOGETHER

God is my Father. He hears my prayer and heals my heart. I will not remain stuck in trauma any longer, and trauma will not remain stuck in me. Jesus heals the brokenhearted, and I receive His healing today. He restores me to health and heals me of all my wounds, inside and out. I am set free from trauma today, in Jesus’ Name.

This is so good! It all seems so simple, but likely the trauma of all things just makes this kind of healing feel unattainable. But the living Word is a cure for sure! Let’s really get healed once and for all. Sharing your post today from Baytown, TX. 🙌🏾
