Many of us have experienced and seen things happen that the human soul was never meant by God to contain.
Dr. Mike Hutchings calls this “Trauma B”– the presence of bad things. This trauma can lead to poor choices– not necessarily because someone is trying to be rebellious against God, but out of the pain of their shattered souls. Like the psalmist David, we can have a wonderful relationship with God, yet experience a roller coaster ride of emotions throughout our lives because of trauma. But be encouraged! It’s the heart of God that you don’t live like that for the rest of your life.
In this video, Dr. Hutchings describes the good news that David and the apostle Paul were able to say after all the “Trauma B” they experienced.
