Many people refuse to go back and look at their past damage because they are trying to “put it in the past and leave it there”. What happens most of the time is that the issues of that damage continue to come back to haunt them no matter how they try to ignore them.
Many times, the issues rise within relationships; issues such as abandonment, betrayal, abuse of any kind, anger, lack of trust, fear, depression and on and on. They may go to a doctor, counselor, therapist, pastor and so on and many times they are put on a variety of meds to help them cope. Someone helping them may think that praying about it is the only step they need to take; sort of a bandaid. Believe me, I believe in the power of prayer, but it also takes work on our part to dig deep. Many take up addictive behavior that negatively affects their health and well-being to try to cope.
I believe they need to get to the root of the issues, see the power painful experiences have had on them, work toward true forgiveness and healing in Jesus and then be given tools to move forward as a stronger and more confident person with freedom in Christ.
