Milestones in Our Healing Process

I’m thinking my way through some steps to healing from spiritual abuse.  How do we heal from such atrocities?  Is it totally the Lord who swoops in and performs an outright  miracle?  He certainly could.  Perhaps he does in some cases.

But is that how our healing always takes place?  Or can we play a part in our healing?  What does the process look like?  Are there steps to go through?  The following list is not meant to be comprehensive.  And they’re not in any particular order.  It’s simply what I’m thinking about today.  See what you think. 

  • Prayer
  • Someone to talk to that really knows how to listen
  • Community – perhaps a new community
  • Research into how others have handled similar abuse
  • Passage of time
  • Willingness & determination
  • Deep yearning for our own wholeness
  • Turning points and Milestones
  • Becoming sick and tired of not being healed, which means we’re willing and ready to do something about it
  • Letting go – Wanting, desiring mightily to let go but not knowing how yet
  • Searching for and finding a mechanism of letting go and being willing to use that prayer or Scripture verse, whatever that mechanism is that works for you in this moment.
  • Inner movement in one’s own spirit
  • Movement toward knowing we need to forgive
  • Movement toward being willing to forgive, but not knowing how
  • Wanting to know what the ramifications of forgiveness are
  • The actual forgiving

What do you think about this beginning list of items in the process of being healed?  Is there something on it that speaks to your experience of the process?
