Today, triggers and PTSD were the thoughts that came to me. Simple little things that would not bother some or the little things that victims have to overcome. For these little things cause us distress when we experience them and then regress….Triggers, triggers…and PTSD…not a response…any want to see.Seeing a man…or even his name…raises this fear…all the same.Responding to wounds…inflicted before.Fearing his anger…and expecting more.Seeing his deception…others couldn’t see.Knowing you’re the target…and the danger to be.Responses triggered…definitely not planned…with memories flashed…though hard to understand.For many are wounded…by abusers in their life.Experiencing the pain…like being cut with a knife.But we need healing…so we’ll trigger no longer.With no more PTSD…we will then be stronger.Dear Lord, only You see those who have been abused and victimized with resultant triggers of fear. You know the wounds that have been inflicted upon each of them by the abuse and traumas that has come against them. I pray for total healing and restoration for all that have been wounded by the actions of others. I pray that what once was triggers would become the catalyst to propel each from victim to victorious… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
