PTSD Patrol What were you designed to do?

Every vehicle on the road was designed for a specific purpose. A race car was designed to go fast and it was built that way. Construction equipment was designed to do a specific job and was built to do it. Plows were designed to clear things out of the way, and they were also built to do it. So were you!

If you are in any type of service to others, no matter what it is, you were tugged to do it because that is what you were designed to do. The wondrous thing is, you were also built to do it and endure whatever hardship came with what you were designed to do. It is all there, included in the plans for your purpose by design.
Jeremiah 29 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.
You will begin to learn how to connect what was included in your design to prosper, have hope for your future and be brought out of the captivity of PTSD.

Every vehicle was designed for a specific purpose and was built accordingly. So were you. Everything you needed to do what you were designed to do is all there.

PTSD Patrol Learning How to Use Overdrive

Yesterday you got out of the ditch with help. Today you are back on the road, but facing a steep hill toward your journey of healing. It can be a great road trip once you get over this hill.

Working so far on your mind by being evaluated and getting mental heal help was like tuning your engine. Working on your body, was like charging your battery. Now is the time to work on your spirit.

The hill you are dealing with is only hard to get over because of what you didn't really leave behind you. You are still carrying that cargo and it is too heavy. Hanging onto anger, judgement and negative emotions is allowing what happened to you, control you. Learning how to forgive is the only way to take back your power and that comes from OVERDRIVE.

Love in Action 
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 
10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 
11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 
12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 
13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. 
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 
15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 
16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 
18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 
19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 
20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

PTSD Patrol getting you out of the ditch

Driving down the road is never fun when you get stuck in a ditch. Sooner or later someone comes along, figures out how you got there, and how to get you out of it so you can get to where you want to go! That is my job when you are dealing with PTSD! #BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife 

PS If you watch the videos from last year, Murray is in this one!
