On most days, something hard from your past sneaks into the present. Sometimes it assaults you. When it does, we usually refer to it as trauma or PTSD. Though not strictly a modern problem, it is certainly widespread in our modern era. The challenge for biblical counselors is that PTSD is typically partitioned off from Scripture, as if the more serious problems people face need more than Scripture can offer. We will use trauma as a case study in how to break through these partitions and find that the Lord, as we might expect, says much more than we anticipated.
