Below you will find links to my series on PTSD. The links will lead to pages with videos related to PTSD, art directives, and pictures from our workshops. These videos were filmed live streamed and are part of the mental health workshops known as “Psalms 102 Ministries” being held at the River Room Church once a month. Each workshop consists of 1-2 hours of teaching followed by art making related to the topics discussed and designed to bring healing and deliverance. Although the art making is not filmed, the art directive will be presented along with instructions (either verbally, in writing, or both) along with pictures for you to also benefit.
I included the PTSD series here, as a separate post from the Psalms 102 Ministries page (where all the workshops can be found), just so that the PTSD series can be found all together, in one place, thus making it more user friendly.
This series addresses PTSD from a personal, biblical, and spiritual perspective as well as includes many my own artworks to illustrate. Each part of the series is filled with numerous scriptures to reveal God’s will, character, and path to healing as it relates to each part of the recovery process. The subjects were based on the stages God took me through in my own recovery process from PTSD beginning in 1995. Also, you will find education about the various problems related to PTSD and ways to cope with them.
This series is recommended to compliment professional help, use of medication as prescribed by a doctor (if needed), and to offer insight into ways to connect your faith in God to the advice and healing guidance being provided by the medical and psychiatric community. I strongly recommend letting God be at the center of your healing journey, praying over every decision as it concerns to your recovery, and letting God guide you with wisdom and discernment. I believe healing will happen when God is in charge of the recovery process, and that God can do wonders even with secular therapists. However, not all therapists are built the same, and some may be able to help more then others. Especially look for trauma-focused therapists, but there are many types to choose from as you will learn about in this series. God can still help you whether you have limited resources or not; just trust Him. Ask questions. Use discernment. Find the resources available to you. God is a miracle working, God, and PTSD is something that you can recover from, but you can only get so far in your healing journey without God’s power. This series will equip you with biblical truth that is packed with power! Let God take you all the way in your healing! I believe in miracles and deliverance, but also believe that, in general, the recovery process takes time because God has to renew your mind and change how you respond not only to Him, but to yourself, others, and the world around you. You will find that God is very gentle, compassionate, understanding, slow to anger, and very gracious. There is room for you to make mistakes and grow. God will never stop loving you and never abandon you. He will be there to help you every step of the way. You are not alone!
