Emotional Healing Through Dealing with Past Issues – Part 1B (click here for PDF version)

October 25, 2012

NOTE: REMEMBER, as previously stated, this series was written on October 1st and God has delivered me since then; I wrote it as it was given to me at that time!


Then God brought me up to when I was two years old and revealed something else to me; God kept this process going until He had gotten me up to a certain age – He then gave me a break in having to deal with past issues until now – as I said before, I thought I was finished with dealing with past issues since I had already dealt with sooooo many. Now, God is taking me through some more ages (He has not told me yet). God is once again revealing to me more of what happened to me as a child and in the last abusive marriage; God is finishing my deliverance and healing process – He is perfecting me one step at a time from the hurt and pain of the past.

What I am sharing with you now is what God has done for me as of today, October 1, 2012; He told me to get my pen and paper and begin to write – I know God wants me to share my story with others so they can realize that once they are out of an abusive relationship or encountered childhood abuse or any other traumatic event and leave, does not mean it is over – there are many pieces that has to be picked up in your life and the time it takes to complete the work in you (deliverance, healing and restoration processes), depends on how damaged you are by what happened to you and how receptive you are to God!

In my dealing with those issues from the past which was triggered by the recent traumatic experience, God let me knew, as I begin writing this, that I have been surviving all these years off my great, great grandmother’s love; that is what has been keeping me going. Also, my grandmother’s love is the reason why I would get caught up with people who really did not mean me any good; I thought they were nice and really cared about me but inwardly they were wolves!! I was looking for someone to love me like my grandmother not fully understanding there were different types of love (agape, phileo, storge, and eros); I was looking for the impossible – there is no way anyone can love me the way my grandmother did!!!

The hurts and pains I suffered from trying to find love, was not dealt with by the root; that is why they are coming up now after all those years! Always remember, there is a root cause to every action and until that root cause is found and dealt with, you will not be fully free. In my case, I had several root causes of what happened to me; I could not be fully delivered until everyone of those root causes were revealed to me by God and I choose to deal with them (face up to what happened to me, forgive and move on – not allowing what happen to me define me and learning from what happened to me).

It is a good idea to learn from what happen to you that way you will not allow it to happen again. I kept putting the bad things away in a compartment of my mind, not wanting to face what happened; it hurt too badly. Little did I know all those ignored issues would come back to haunt me. Now, I have to go back (in my mind) and deal with them before I can truly move on; before I can really live the abundant life Jesus died for me to live. The old bad memories will interfere with God giving me new good memories; out with the old and in with the new!! God makes ALL things new!!!

You must understand, if you do not deal with ALL the past issues which traumatized you, emotionally affected you, caused your mind to be alter, you CANNOT, I repeat CANNOT live the abundant life Jesus died so you could live! Don’t allow the enemy to cause you to live beneath your privileges; to not to enjoy the life God intended for you to live in fellowship with Him and others – don’t stay in bondage to past issues.
