Bible Study Guide Idea About Trauma

Three years ago I shared a post- Jesus Understands Trauma. I wont go into details in this post about my experience, but wanted to share an idea I have. I am thinking about writing a Bible Study Guide regarding trauma. The focus being on how Jesus understands.

It will not be intended to replace therapy/counseling. It can be helpful to meet with a therapist who has training and experience working with people who have experienced trauma. I have be benefitting from therapy sessions myself.

Trauma can come from different experiences such as being abused as a child, a struggle with a disease, being in a war etc. The focus of the Bible Study guide will be on Jesus understands and wants to join with us in our healing journey. What do you think?

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

    1. Yes, but sometimes we also need a friend, that’s not always easy. That’s why we have therapists instead. After about thirty 2020s in a row, with severe trauma every 3 months on average, not even my very intimate relationship with God, tremendous Scripture knowledge and a deeply rooted faith seems to help.

      1. I appreciate you sharing your experience. It is no easy to share trauma experience. You are brave my friend.
        Each person’s experience in healing from trauma differs. I benefit from friends at church, meeting with a therapist as well. The bible study guide I feel led to write is not intended to replace those. It is intended to be an additional support.

  1. Sounds like a good idea. A reminder with scriptural backing that Jesus understands can be a comfort and an encouragement to those who need it.

  2. I really like this idea! It is an area very dear to my heart and I can already think of several people I know that could use something like this.

  3. I think this is a fantastic idea. There are so many that have suffered trauma.
    A lot of times therapy is only covered for a short time, and unfortunately, there’s not always a Christian therapist available, either. The need for after therapy is rampant.

  4. Great idea! There’s trauma of all sorts and when people experience current triggers they don’t always understand the root cause is trauma and it could be from long ago.
    So needed, Matt! Praying God leads you forward in this.
