There are warriors who spend their entire lives being prepared for battle and warding off every type of foreseen or unforeseen enemy. They are trained, and programmed in the art of war (warfare), that surrender is not an option. Even when peace is at the door, they prefer war!
Sometimes these warriors were trained not with weapons, but with the struggles of life. They have become victims of abuse, racism, wounds, and loss. They have created their own battlefield, and their war zones are full of imaginary enemies. Even those who reach out to help become victims and prey to their pain.
Guard yourself against Post Traumatic Spiritual Drama (PTSD), and learn to surrender in times of peace to God. He is the Prince of Peace!
2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
