I've Learned My Lesson

Genesis 32:28

March 14, 2021 • Dr. Delman Coates

As a pastor, I’ve come across several people over the years struggling to have thriving and successful relationships because of some painful experience in their past. Many have even experienced psychological injuries from their childhood that affect how they communicate, how they handle conflict, how they manage their emotions, and how they handle stress. This kind of trauma manifests with people having trust issues, abandonment issues, financial problems, addictions, and the inability to function in a healthy way. When people have been wounded emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically it prevents them from being able to have healthy relationships. They often struggle with depression and some find themselves trapped in a cycle of dysfunction, going from one dysfunctional relationship to another. Thankfully, we don’t have to remain in bondage to this trauma forever. The Lord is more than capable of bringing you out of the darkness of your trauma and bringing you into His light and His freedom. In this message, we’re going to take a closer look at how the Lord can help you navigate your own trauma.
