My beloved sisters and brothers,
There is no doubt that being a multiple can be lonely and difficult, and often frightening. There are many times we long for someone who has been there to help us find the path, the road signs,that point in the direction of wholeness.
As I was praying about how to share with you, the Lord gave me a scripture:
Mat 12:20-21 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. (21) And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
I checked the original Greek with Strong’s.
That word “bruised” means:
συντρίβω, suntribō, soon-tree’-bo
From G4862 and the base of G5147; to crush completely, that is, to shatter (literally or figuratively): – break (in pieces), broken to shivers (+ -hearted), bruise.
And “break” means:
κατάγνυμι, katagnumi, kat-ag’-noo-mee
From G2596 and the base of G4486; to rend in pieces, that is, crack apart: – break.
So this verse is saying that Jesus will not tear apart one who is already shattered (a perfect description of DID/MPD). He will not capitalize on our weakness and use it to our disadvantage. Rather, He will give us hope and we will trust in Him.
Sometimes feelings of condemnation, guilt, and many fears threaten to overtake us. We feel like we don’t fit in with others, and we have a secret to guard.
Jesus is the very One who made a way for us to live through trauma by allowing us to create alters, and He knows exactly what needs to happen in order for us to heal. The One in Whom we place our trust will remain the only One who is truly able to love and complete us in our brokenness – to gather up the fragments of ourselves – and bring us unity within. His love brings freedom, and covers a multitude of sins.
Some of our alters and fragments are/were in need of healing and deliverance. Jesus is utterly trustworthy to heal and deliver you. Call out to Him, and trust Him; He will bind up your wounds and bring peace to your soul.
This is the time to rejoice in the victory that is ahead, and to praise God for you are fearfully and wonderfully made!
May the Lord give you His Shalom, and light your path through the darkness. In Yeshua’s (Jesus’) name.
