Following up on yesterday’s post, I am presenting ways to kick out Ghosts in the Nursery. If you didn’t read yesterday’s blog post, please read it here. There is no good in presenting a problem without offering solutions.
The Nursery is the parent-child relationship. The Ghosts are traumatic experiences in our lineage and those we have personally experienced as parents. They are genetically transferred trauma and personal experiences that affect how we parent.
We can kick out intruders, those thoughts and behaviors that threaten our relationship with our children by praying, forgiving ourselves and others, and seeking professional help or therapy.
3 Ways to Kick Out Ghosts in the Nursery
Pray: This should always be the first strategy of the Christian. In all your ways, acknowledge God and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3:6). Ask God to show you the ghosts in your nursery. Ask God to heal your heart and give you wisdom to know what to do. Do you need to fast, go for therapy, talk to your pastor? Let God lead you.
The prayer of repentance is also important. We should repent for our sins and our ancestor’s iniquities (Leviticus 26:40-42). We may not have had anything to do with whatever evil they committed but we may be affected.
Forgive: healing begins with the forgiveness of self and others. It sets the victim free from the oppressor. Forgiveness is not easy but we can ask God to help us and let his love transform our hearts. Ask God to give you the strength to forgive those responsible for your traumatic experiences.
Seek professional help or therapy: There is nothing wrong in going for therapy. Seeing a therapist doesn’t mean you are crazy. It means you are smart enough to reach out and receive help. God can lead you to the right therapist, Just talk to Him. He is into every detail of our lives.
