Why give them power over you
July 6, 2019
Do you believe you made the choice to risk your life for others because you were called to do it? Was there a tug to enter into a job you knew could kill you?
There was always something very different inside of you. Plenty of times in your life someone said something proving they did not understand your decision to choose that kind of job.
You did not let them stop you then. They had no power to prevent you from doing what you knew you needed to do. Then why listen to them now when you need to heal because of that job?
The only power people have over you, is what you allow them to have. If you hear someone say something stupid because you need help now think about it and you'll see they are not making any sense at all.
First, your job required you to help others and so did theirs. If they are turning against you needing help from them...they should not be on that job.
Next, think about how you would have died to save them and supposedly they would have died on the job to save you too. Would it be too much to ask them to listen to you to save your life now or you to listen to them to save theirs?
Come out of the dark and fight like you served...side by side.
Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)
You may feel lost and alone right now
and wondering what you did wrong.
You may think you are now weak instead of strong.
Why believe what others say about you
when you always knew what was true?
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,He had plans for you and put what you need inside of you
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you"He had
"plans to give you hope and a future."You had everything you needed to do your job already inside of you and that includes healing because of your job.
Over 7 million Americans have PTSD and most, ended up hit by the one time that could have killed them. You responded to those times. For you it was not one time but the one time too many saving them that hit you the hardest.
You proved you were brave when you took your job and trained hard to be able to do it. What is stopping you now from being brave again so you can train to heal because of your job?
If you cannot find the right words to explain what PTSD is, then you may not understand it totally. Time to learn what it is so you can explain what it is not.
It is because of your job that you grieve
It is not God punishing you
"The Holy Spirit will give you the words to say at the moment when you need them." Luke 12:12 The Voice (VOICE
And when you understand what it is, then you can become a hero after you begin to fight this war against the people who have no power over you anymore.
