Void Your Contract with Trauma


Every moment we experience in our lives, both good and bad, are memories that can either make or break us. Ultimately the choice is ours how we handle the situation, but our perspective will change the outcome of our resolve. These events can be damaging, long-term or short-term. Circumstance can also dictate how we react in future situations, or the tactics we use to overcome an obstacle in our path. Trauma translates in Greek to a “wound or injury,” whether it is physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional, it is pain. Many say that “time heals all wounds”, while that may hold true for a broken limb, how does that apply to healing your mind or spirit?


A surgeon can’t cut out the darkness pervading your thoughts. A psychiatrist can prescribe you pills to numb the pain or make it more tolerable but the only way you will forget the fear is to be lobotomized or to trust in the Almighty Lord as the Great Physician. I personally would rather turn to my Father in Heaven than dose myself with drugs and risk side effects I will need even more drugs for. I would rather worship and pray in supplication on my knees and make my requests be known for supernatural healing to repair all afflictions of my past. Don’t become numb, just become immovable with unshakeable faith. Psalms 107:13-14— “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke their chains in pieces.” He will rescue you from the shadows, all you must do is seek the light and believe in the healing that it brings.


Did you know that if you have any unbelief in you that you will not be able to receive all of God’s blessings for you? Sometimes the enemy has us convinced we are so broken, it will take worldly techniques to mend us, but only Jesus can make us whole. It is easier to trust what is right in front of us on paper or x-rays. It is easier to take a pill to make the voices seemingly go away. It is easier to just drown our sorrows with drinking or getting high to escape the racing thoughts. It is even easier to want to be someone else other than that person that was victimized. It can feel good, but it won’t heal us, it is only temporary. There is an illusion to these comforts we so desperately desire, and once that façade fades, we are left miserable with more longing. In the Book of Matthew, there was a story about the twelve Disciples failed attempt to cast out a demon from a child, but Jesus did not fail. They could not understand why they were unable to do so.  Jesus answered in Matthew 17:20— “So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” This unbelief can spawn from many things, even something as simple as worrying about a situation or stressing over a doctor’s diagnosis.


How big is a mustard seed? Relatively small, but it grows into a large tree. In Mark 4:31-32 an accurate portrayal of faith is presented— “It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.” Once you plant that seed, it will thrive but the moment you stop believing, doubt diseases the root and that faith will decay.


When we worry or have fear, we come into agreement with that trauma. The enemy binds us and traps us in bondage. Yahweh is a chain breaker and a way maker; He walked on water and teaches us that we can do what He did. His faithful disciple Peter once stepped out of the boat to come to Jesus walking on water in Matthew 14:29-31— “So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” If we doubt, we will drown.


I was that victim, I have been abused sexually, mentally, emotionally, and even physically. I have been on medications for depression, diseases, chronic pain, anxiety, and more. I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia at age 11, I was suicidal, I was addicted to alcohol, I was addicted to pornography, I was promiscuous; I have seen the darkness and lived in the darkness, and I am a survivor. I am redeemed and have been made new by Christ. It wasn’t easy to overcome but it was worth the peace, love, and joy being rediscovered that made me whole again.  I have been healed of my brokenness by trusting in the Lord and renewing my mind through repentance. If you stand firm in your faith, you too will be healed. In Mark 9:23— “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Stop believing in the facts and believe in the Truth. Facts can change, but the truth never changes.

  1. A very true word. While psychotherapy can be helpful, as a believer I have learned to trust God, His Word, and the counsel of other mature Christians. No matter what we experienced earlier in life, we don’t have to stay wrecked by it. God provides whatever is needed to be more than conquerors. Also, I personally don’t even trust Christian counselors anymore, much less secular counselors.
