"Uncovering the wounds of my childhood left me traumatized from decades of rejection. Sin was the only thing that felt like it could numb my pain. But the sin led to shame, and that shame brought on a current of deep depression. For us to make it through the pain, we have to hold on to the promise of hope. But to do that, we have to spend time with the promise-maker."
Sometimes the best thing we can do in the middle of the chaos is take a break. Taking a break can look like a sabbatical, a vacation, or even a walk outside around the block. When we actively pursue healing by connecting with God, we find that it frames our current struggles in a different light.
