Hey everyone

Trust you are all well

Rev 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” We can look forward to this, look to God in everything and get your healing to progress and not stay bound.

Today we will be talking about childhood hurts, this is something that I myself had been on a journey on once upon a time, to learn about and heal from. Because remember in life everything that we do, think or feel, most times have a root that can be linked to our past, going as far as childhood and if it is not dealt with can affect us in a major way in different friendships, relationship and with family too.

Childhood hurts for many could involve abuse – physical, mental, emotional you name it, lack of family units, bullying, self image issues, not feeling good enough etc.

The foundations that we have known, which have shaped our minds and actions to some extent, can be tainted and unhealthy. For so long that baggage of the past has then been on many people’s shoulders and the question one must ask is “are you really delivered?” Have you really let God in to deal with deeper issues of self you either don’t think about or have suppressed it for so long. To be delivered from what others did to you, as well as receiving the inner healing you so desperately need to be made whole and set free and not repeating life in cycles.

As a qualified counsellor the journey to this point has taught me so much more about people’s behaviour, their speech, feelings and view points on things. You find that a lot of people have deep wounds from parents and people from their past that have done them wrong and they have lived in the hurt for so long that they no longer know or even recognise who they are.

One thing I want to say and standby is that the moment you take your hurts to God, repent, seek forgiveness as well as forgive those who wronged you, will bring you healing, growth and a healthier mindset that no one can take the credit for. But if you do not take the steps to speak up and do what is right for you, you’ll find that you will keep staying and repeating in disappointments, self-sabotage, grudges, anger and setbacks. Don’t ever let the things of old and what people have done to you affect you so much that you lose your peace, guidance, joy and happiness.

This is not to justify or water down what you have been through, not at all. But to get you to sit up and let this post push buttons that need to be pushed and lead you back to our Father for your healing.

Playing the victim never gets anyone anywhere, it only keeps you stagnant wanting sympathy and when that is not shown you react and think everyone is against you. No special one- that is toxic living and you need to receive the deliverance that will take you from where you are now to a better, more fulfilling place in Christ.

This topic has been heavy on my heart for while, probably more now than before because I counsel people and see and feel the pain when they share things.

Let this be a starting point to get you thinking and take all hurts back to God and if you believe you are okay, still go back to God and ask Him to show you your heart and if here is anything you need to let go of.

Praying for you all and pray that this post will convict you and get you closer to Abba Father to help you heal and move forward in a healthier way.


Loving you in prayer
