Lean Into PTSD - Day 1 of Prayer

I love Dennis the Menace. He always has such a big heart, but boy can he get himself into trouble. Most times without even trying. Kind of like most of us.


Today, starts our month of prayer for families with PTSD. My intent was to have posted a small article and prayer early this morning, but intent and action are two very different things. So, here I am starting at the end of the day instead of the beginning.


So much has changed in our lives since my husband’s diagnosis in 2016, yet very little has. We are still basically the same people we were. I still drink whiskey on occasion and he still cusses the guy that cut him off on a few more occasions (LOL!), but we live and love and have learned that leaning in to God everyday helps us to walk with more peace, trust, strength, and discipline. We started our mission to help others find more peace, trust, strength, and discipline in their lives 6 years ago and honestly, the world around us looks better and better everyday. There are moments, of course, that are still challenging and way beyond what we can control, but they don’t usually pack the punch like they once did. 


Living with post-traumatic stress is not all sunshine and rainbows, but when we walk with peace, trust, strength, and discipline, there can be sunshine and rainbows in every day. We could probably all use a pair of knee pads like Dennis the Menace has. Leaning into God is not always easy. There are so many distractions and temptations that can lead us astray, yet He offers us the greatest peace. We can trust that He will take care of us and provide us with the strength and discipline that we need to work through anything that we have faced.


I heard it said earlier this week, that the world can change a hundred times in a day, but God never does. And, that stuck. It caused me to lean in even a little more. And, in case you have not figured it out yet, our theme for this month of prayer for families with PTSD – Lean In.


Thank you all so much for joining us in prayer. We are hopeful that you see God moving in your life in ways that you could never have imagined and are praying for you and your family. 


Heavenly Father, thank you for this space where we can pray and be together even though we may be a full world apart. Lord, on this first day of prayer for families with PTSD please help us to lean into you just a little more. Help us to walk with more peace, trust, strength, and discipline knowing that you are guiding, and protecting us every step of the way. Lord, I pray a special blessing upon all those who walk this journey with us whether it be for one day or everyday. Thank you Lord for your great love and wisdom. In Your Name We Pray, Amen.


Ya’ll have a beautiful night!


All My Love,


Jen
