Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Wow!! Thank you God, for a pastor who is not a John Piper fan!!

It is really interesting how I always questioned and felt uneasy and not at peace with these strong Baptist beliefs, and people who follow the John Piper, Mark Driscoll crowds of Christians, who only use part of the Bible, for their opinions on faith.

I cannot say what a relief it was when I saw on a group that our very knowledgeable, highly studied in theology pastor, describe another well known Christian scholar, as someone of much higher calibre than John Piper. He also describes this other Christian scholar as someone how truly honours God and scripture. Which means he believes as well, that John Piper does not.


This was another one of those moments when I could just feel this weight off my shoulders that I didn’t even realise I was carrying and is just one of those Holy Spirit moments where I know this relief and peace at finding a pastor who truly understands scripture and how I will learn from this man.

I have already learned so much in 3 Bible Study sessions, more than I learned in a year previously and in real depth, depth that I know I need to learn.

Thank you God, you truly do love and provide for me and my family in so many incredibly wonderful ways, more than we could ever dream of deserving.

This is why I know my path God is leading me down. Helping people to heal.

“Thank you for supporting my page.

In the short time I have been following your page I have developed a tremendous respect for you. You truly have a gift that enables you to convey in words such great feeling and understanding of peoples suffering.

You speak with such wisdom and a gentleness of spirit that it is impossible not to feel like we know you and that you speak straight to our hearts.

Such insight, love and compassion can only be born from devastating pain and I am sorry that you had to endure so much.

God definitely has a great plan for you and out of your pain you will help bring healing to many.

Thank you for the blessings you bring to many, myself included. Xxx”

I don’t believe I am better than anyone, not even a drugged out homeless person on the street. I know the only difference between that person and me, are our life circumstances. I have made many bad choices of my own.

I am a sinner, one who is passionately trying not to be a sinner, turning away from sin and worldly idols, being continually aware of Jesus and what he requires, of the Holy Spirit’s prompting, filling myself up with God’s Word daily, especially and deeply thankful that my Lord has revealed Himself to me, rendering me speechless.

‘It was like watching a show’

Interesting little conversation occurred.

I have massage therapy and my massage therapist happens to be a Christian and a very strong one too.

She went a few times to the Church I used to attend (where I was spiritually abused).

I haven’t told her about what happened, but just said we had moved Church’s, as we had outgrown the other Church.

She said – I wouldn’t have said anything if you were still going there, but we didn’t get a good vibe there at all, and it was like watching a show, they didn’t seem humble. And then told me the difference in how her pastors at her Church act. Continue reading
