Not alone

Trauma can make you feel very isolated, because no-one around you seems to have experienced anything like you have experienced.  You need to keep telling the story so that the bits get put into place, but who wants to hear it?  Especially if the story goes back 50 years and more?

I think that one of the reasons that people need ‘trauma therapy’ is that families and communities change and move so much.  The people who ‘went through it with you’ are far away.

But the Lord is not far away.  And He doesn’t mind hearing the story over and over again.  He’s there, even when the fragmentation is so great that nothing seems real and you can’t feel Him.  He can see every piece, He knows how much you can cope with at a time, and His timing is perfect.
