Healing from the Bondage of Trauma

November 9, 2021

Not many people know about the moment that changed my life almost 20 years ago, which began the bondage of trauma that the enemy would hold on me. I was a high school senior who had big dreams of going off to college and pursuing her dream to become a teacher. In the spring of that year I would come home a week shy of my 18th birthday to the news that my dad was missing. The next week was a blur as they searched for him and three days after my senior prom they would find him gone from suicide. I never got to say goodbye and for years and years I would live with the guilt of wondering if I was the reason he left.

I lived with the torture of wondering if I would ever see him again in Heaven and I carried this from relationship to relationship as well. It wasn’t until God got a hold of me in 2008 and I rededicated my life to Him that I started to feel healing.

During the breakthrough session with Chariti, Breaking the Power of Trauma, at the 2021 Moms in the Making conference I was able to finally receive the healing I needed. As Chariti walked us through the steps of overcoming trauma I began to have a beautiful and intimate moment with Jesus. My dad’s death was the trauma I had been carrying and that day I forgave him and was able to say goodbye. In that moment, Jesus tenderly embraced my face as my dad walked away and spoke telling me that I could no longer look to my past. He showed me that it was only through keeping my eyes on Him that I could fully move into the future He had waiting for me. I’ve never felt so much freedom in my life. I’ve been able to see my marriage through fresh eyes and see my beautiful miracles through fresh eyes, and most importantly I can now see myself how God sees me!

Thank you God for your healing and for your steadfast love and grace!
