My pastor asked me three questions after reading my draft of my book Jesus Understands Trauma. They are not easy ones to answer, but I realized they need to be addressed. I had a bit of writers block until Sunday. A new friend I met at the coffee shop asked me how my book was coming Sunday afternoon. When she asked, it sparked my writing.
Yesterday in my session with my therapist Dezirae I shared about the questions my pastor asked. When I read the questions to her, she said, “I like your pastor.” We had a good discussion about the questions.
So my book that I hoped to publish in September will be published hopefully later this month. You might be wondering what those questions were, so here they are:
“why doesn’t God take trauma away and heal me right away? Why linger? – why does God allow trauma, pain, abuse to happen? – how should I think, relate to, forgive my abusers?”
I know my answers to the questions but it is writing them that takes time to process. Side note- I am so glad I can do it on a computer because it is so much easier. 🙂
So the process continues. Prayers appreciated.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Busy, but all is well. My book has had to go on ‘hold’. 😀
Matt, I pray for you for clarity in your thoughts and for words to flow as you finish your book.🌺
God will see you through and use it for His glory…by the way your pastor snuck in an extra question, there’s technically four there not just three!😉
ugh four I didn’t notice until now lol
Praying for you. Did you publish the book about the ancients yet? That was very creative.
