The SOUL mission of healing PTSD
January 8, 2020
There are so many misconceptions about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, that it would take too long to cover. We shall begin with what will change the rest of your life with PTSD!
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."You are not a victim! What tried to kill you lost and you survived, There is nothing to be ashamed of. Having experienced something like that, and being changed by it, it is time to experience healing so you can change again!
Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)
Understand PTSD is not a punishment from God, especially if you were willing to sacrifice your life for the sake of others.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.Most of the following videos go back to 2006. While some of the numbers are outdated, the message of healing is timeless!
John 15:13 King James Version (KJV)
If your job caused the pain you feel right now, you need to know that everything you needed to do your job was in your soul. That is why you felt the tug to do what did, knowing the high price you would pay to do it. The great news is, whatever you need to heal the pain it caused you, is also within you!
If you grieve, then it was because you loved...not just your friends, but willing to lay down your life for strangers too.
If you trusted those you served with, with your life, then understand that while they were willing to die for you too, they will be more than willing to listen to you now! Let them help you come out of the darkness that has trapped you.
Since 1984 Point Man International Ministries has been sharing what we know about healing and how to focus on what is possible.
If you look up Point Man statement of faith and our Mission statement you will find that our mission is based on doing the work that God intended us to do so that veterans know they are loved by Him.
PMIM is a service organization with an evangelical purpose. Keeping Jesus Christ the focal point PMIM acts as a referral service to connect hurting veterans and their families to our Outpost and Home Front system for continued support and fellowship. These support groups are available at no charge, and utilize the gospel of Jesus Christ and Biblical principles to facilitate healing and restoration.Point Man was started by a Vietnam Veteran working as a police officer in Seattle. He knew they needed someone to listen to them and help them heal their spirits, as well as their minds and bodies.
If you have not received help yet, it is not too late for you to live a happier life, healing your wound. The word "trauma" is Greek for wound.
Isn't it time you started to live for love instead of just being willing to die for it?
