237 – Is it possible to find healing from the effects of trauma and abuse?

Have you or someone you know been in an abusive or traumatic situation or relationship? This episode is for you.

Marina Carrier shares how she overcame the residual effects of being an unwanted child and sexual abuse at the age of nine.

It was only through the power of the Holy Spirit, which brought her back to the church and the study of the Bible, which started her journey of healing.

Some important steps along the way were

  • The Prayer of Jabez to enlarge her territories
  • Learning French
  • Writing in her journal
  • Listening to God and to herself
  • Bringing her well-hidden pain out where she could acknowledge it and give it to God

Marina talks about how important it is to have a working relationship with God, but points out there's a difference between head-knowledge and heart-knowledge of God.

She loves when John the Baptist sends his disciples to ask Jesus if he is the Messiah. She can relate to what it's like to be in prison full of doubts. Her solution is always to keep turning to God and listening for His voice.

Don't close the door on God, on others, or yourself.

And if you haven't experienced abuse and trauma in your life, remember that those who have need your love and compassion. Don't try to fix them. Don't give them platitudes or quote Bible verses to them. Just love them. Just listen with your heart.
