Can Somebody Help Me
Can somebody help? Over the last 3 years I have had some traumatic experiences, as a result I have sustained a short term memory and emotional instability. I find it impossible to trust another human being. How can I ever have a relationship?

I'm right there with you Susanna. Putting faith and trust in other people is definitely a risky proposition. Jesus is really the only human being worthy of our faith and trust. We are never forsaken by Him. Forget about relationships for now. Perhaps one day God will lead you to a person who is trustworthy and He will miraculously give you the ability to trust again.

Steve ... spankings at 16 SHOULD be unheard of.

i agree with the moderator's good advice. In the past i succumbed to dissociative disorder, and i went to work, and the girl i worked with for 3 years sitting next to me in the same cubicle i had no recollection of who she was, and asked her if she was a new employee. God healed me of that, and he can heal you too. Listen to the moderator's advice on this, and God can restore your mental faculties and confidence again.

Jer 17:5 . . . Cursed be the man that trusteth in man
Mic 7:5 Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide . . .
Don't trust any man (or woman). Trust God. Ps 4:5, 37:3, 62:8, 115:9; Pr 3:5; Is 26:4.
If you are saved, Christ is your eternal Husband. Is 54:5; Jer 3:14, 31:32.
Mk 12:30 . . . love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, . . . soul, . . . mind, and . . . . strength
Spend your time with Him until He gives you relationships with others.

Susana, if you'd like, you can e-mail me at heath 936 and I could share steps I took with my life. :)

Susanna:With the sketchy data you have presented The only conclusion I can come to is you are in some sort of mental distresss you need to get an evaluation & see a good doctor asap = and say a prayer. A change of surroundings may also help your situation.

Jesus says"seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you(Matt.6;33) Go to Jesus,cast your cares upon Him.Strengthen your relationship with Him and trust can be restored..Fall in love with Him, He needs to be our FIRST love and the GREATEST..He can/will restore/ enable you to trust again.

I strongly encourage you to seek therapy, and to get into a good Bible study with other women. Those two combined will help you very much.

I had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and have found great help from a christian counselor. Medication will help, but dealing with the root is necessary to really be healed. Find a way to worship, I painted murals in the children's area at my church during my darkest hours. Ask God to help you overcome. He always answered me.

Those who are in Christ are a new creation and the old has passed away and the new has come. The power of the blood of Jesus can break down any stronghold.

Dear Susannah, I hear your heart's cry. Do what the moderator suggests and you will find improvement in your relationships.Fall in love with Jesus my dear and He will give you courage. My favorite saying is "Be trustfully watchful." Be careful whom you choose to be a friend....start by asking Jesus to be your friend-He will; ask God to lead you to those whom you are to talk with each day. God WILL give you the desires of your heart if you only believe in Him!

Have you ever sought out Christian counseling? Might be something to pray about.

The Bible says there is no good thing in the flesh.That is why you must draw as close to God as possible and put your trust in Him.He can lead you, show who you can trust and who you shouldn't.Pray for wisdom and discernment that you may know ,with God's help,which direction you should go.See if a person's life lines up with God's Word.I went through memory loss during emotional stress, but was restored to normal when it was over.God can take you through and heal your aching heart.Trust God.

I advise to take time in prayer and ask God to heal you. You may never trust again until you are completely healed. God will lead you to the right person if you can simply trust Him. Is there anything hard for Him. Dont do it your way cause in the long run you may get hurt. Make all your plan known unto your God.
