We as people can be easily broken, torn up inside, shredded through the circumstances we face. And there are times when we don’t know why. We may never know why. No amount of reasoning through it, makes any sense.
The more I blog, the more I see, both men and women attempting to recover. And as people of faith we are often tempted to offer advice and say……”you need to do, this or that…..”.
We sometimes say, if they would just have more faith…..or if they would just forgive. We want to help don’t we? But sometimes a sermon is not what the injured need.
Perhaps all they need is a friend, someone willing to listen. Our well meaning advice can often sound like we are judging them. So be careful!
God has not called us to be judges, has He? And did you know that trauma can change our beliefs, how we view life and God? Yep, I just learned this recently.
I know of a woman who became mentally ill due to what she faced. It happens. And some need alot of help, even professional help, not just a quick prayer and amen, see you later.
Lord God, please bring healing to those we know that have been traumatized. And help us, to be light, to be the compassion they need.
Maybe we can be the ones to listen, give us wisdom, and the humility to say we don’t have all the answers, but we care. Lord God, we cry out for healing to take place. Amen and amen.
