I have gone back and am Reading again chapters 1 through 7
Unwanted. How sexual Brokenness reveals our way to Healing
Chapter 6. Trauma as Soul loss.
I am beginning to understand how the trauma during my childhood has really shaped a lot of my behaviors. Even as minor as some of them were. I’m understanding now that they really weren’t minor.
The author says.
” try learning how to cook if the only thing you ever learned about was food poisoning.”
We’ve had comprehensive sex education, some churches have focused on sex education through scripture reading, but most of these have not encouraged people to explore the actual trauma beneath the struggle and it doesn’t necessarily have to be unwanted sexual behavior.
The author says ”
Some of my clients lust not only for sexual behavior but also for the right therapist, the right book, and the right software. They will do almost anything – anything except to slow down to study how the debris of their sexual behavior is telling a story about the unresolved traumas of their lives.”
What I am understanding is this doesn’t necessarily mean sexual trauma in our childhood, it’s referring to any type of trauma.
I can honestly say for myself, I have looked for the right therapist and the right book and the right software. It’s easier that way then you don’t have to look at the Deep wounds that you have covered up.
Jesus says, come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.
I know for myself that I have had some trauma in my life. I have being bullied, been made fun of by teachers and several horrific motorcycle accidents.
My future is in his hands and he will lead me in the way of righteousness and peace. But I have to allow the Lord to be my guide.
Isaiah 58:11 the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones. You shall be like a well-watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose Waters do not fail.
Once again it boils down to the quality of your life will depend on the quality of the questions that you are willing to ask yourself.
