Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

God does not ‘give’ us anything bad, or ‘bring us to’ anything bad.


Anything that contradicts with pure love, pure goodness, is not of God.

I truly detest seeing those quotes that Christians use like;

‘If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it’ and

‘God gives you trials to make you stronger’.

This implies God ‘gives’ you hurt, gives you heartache, gives you abuse, gives you hardship.

Is that pure goodness? Is that love? Is that the character of God?

Is that what Jesus taught during His 3 years of teachings, of His ministry?

This to me, has always contradicted with this concept that God is pure love. That God is pure goodness.

This to me, is blasphemy – it is saying God’s character, is evil, is bad. It is not.

And that scares me, how many are blaspheming God’s Holy Spirit, because that is the unforgivable sin and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that.

Obviously most people just believe this wrong understanding of God – because it’s what they have been taught by teachers who don’t know God’s character either, or how to interpret the Bible correctly, don’t know theology. But, it is still not good, to say God’s character includes anything bad.

I don’t want my children to go through pain and suffering, but if they do, and they will – because that is life, then I will be there for them.

I believe this is also God’s character, only in a pure form.

Nothing bad, harmful or evil, can exist in a pure and loving God.

I don’t believe God ‘gives’ us anything bad, negative, evil, harm, suffering in any form.

I believe all this comes from human sin and evil/Satan. These are not of God, at all.

I am so scared for a world that believes God is evil, and gives us hardship and torment and suffering, to teach us and make us what He wants.

This false conception of God, is why so many believe that God is so angry with us inners, who fail to meet his perfect requirements, and therefore He believes we all deserve hell, so sent a pure, prefect sinless man, to thrash him on a cross, and die a terrible death, for us.

To save us from God.

God, did not send Jesus to die on a cross, to save us for our sins only, to save us from Him.

God revealed Himself in human form, to show us who He truly is, and to not repay evil with evil, and to not fight those who wanted Him dead, and when He was hung on that cross, He defeated evil, all evil and saved us ALL from the dominion of Satan, and will complete this when Jesus returns and the Kingdom of God, is recreated again, as it should be, here on earth, and all those who follow Him will live for eternity with God here on earth.

I don’t believe God wants those who don’t meet His criteria – in hell burning in torment for eternity. This would not be God’s character.

This wrong idea of God, is the Old testament view the Jews had of God. That He is a warlord, who will kill and crush the enemies and the messiah would do this too. But, Jesus showed us the opposite of this.

God doesn’t do evil, even to his enemies, even Satan. They will all die an eternal death and whither to nothing.

So, as I believe this fully, I do not believe God wants us to go through suffering. He does not ‘bring us to it’, or choose some kind of suffering for us to endure.

But, He will help us through it when we do go through suffering – created not by Him, but by evil and human sin.

He will guide us, He will give us the strength we need, He will provide what we need and He will use these situations, to teach us and grow us, if we are willing.

God’s character – is pure love, pure goodness, pure light, wanting nothing but good for us.

I do no believe, at all, that God ‘gives’ us anything bad.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. Im learning the hard way churches dont know how to handle mental illness. Its easier to do your therapy outside of the church and basically not to let the two cross. People find out and because they dont understand, they never talk to you again. People you thought were your friends. So I no longer talk to anyone about my anxiety or my diagnosis e’s. I now journal and blog. Its safer that way.

  2. THANK YOU!!!
