Grow through emotional triggers with prayer ministry and find consistent rest in the Father’s Love.
At one time I lived in a near constantly triggered state. That state of feeling impending doom all the time; that life was going to crash around me.
My heart had embraced so many lies that I was unprotected and powerless. I was surrounded by thoughts that abuse could come my way at any time. Growing up in abuse fostered this internal dialogue that continued into my adult years, even into my Christian life, well past the time of no longer living in it.
I’m happy to say this is gone from my life.
An Adjusted View of Triggers
For a long time I thought I would get some deliverance over a few key issues and then all of my life would be hunky dory.
However, I’ve come to realize that everyone gets triggered from time to time. I no longer live in a constant state of being triggered, but things do happen occasionally that stir negative emotions in me.
I have found the key to handle the triggers of life that arise. When I face them in rest, I grow deeper in my relationship with Father God. It sounds like a contradiction to say you can face a negative emotional trigger in rest, yet I assure you it is quite possible.
So what’s the key? The more I’m rooted in God’s love, the more I realize the trigger I’m experiencing is not about my identity. My heart is simply telling me something. That’s what the “trigger” is about – it’s initiating or stimulating a reaction in me; it’s letting me know something’s unsettled. This reaction may be from someone who has crossed my boundaries and it is just now becoming clear to me. Or, it may have originated from a new “unknown” in my life where I need to identify and embrace more faith in God.
How you view emotional triggers is such a key in growing in Father’s love.
Know you are loved. Know that it is normal to need ministry. Know that we all face heart issues to work through from time to time. You are not weird or unusual. Armed with these thoughts, you are on your way to living as an overcomer, regularly experiencing a state of more peace and rest in your daily life.
