Redeeming Love: The Journey Continues (#860)

This is the final episode of the Redeeming Love series, unpacking a very personal story of pain, trauma, redemption, and resurrection in Wayne and Sara's journey. Somehow Wayne and Sara's marriage not only survived the unrelenting darkness of trauma and the way the enemy exploited to isolate them from each other, but it is also taking them to fresh and new places in their journey together. Is there more trauma yet to deal with, and if not, what will the future hold for them?

  1. Hi Wayne and Sara, thank you so much for being so brave and honest. I was almost brought to tears towards the end of the podcast where you spoke of hope and love and how Father wants to heal. I don’t want to go into great detail about my journey except that I’m 69 y/o, a believer, sober for 23+ years, a stroke survivor, and have suffered from childhood trauma my entire life. And earlier this summer I almost committed suicide. I wrestled with these thoughts daily and saw no solution or hope. I would wake up in the mornings and sit on the edge on my bed and just start crying and not know why. I went so far as to renew a meds prescription I knew would do the job and even held the pills in my hand. And then… I heard a podcast that rocked my world. You, who I’ve listened to for years, spoke of trauma and it’s life long influence. I bought Van Der Kolk’s book and started devouring it as it held truths and science I had not heard of prior. I’ve always remembered the trauma, the violence, and struggled with my own patterns but now I was hearing and reading science based explanations and was given understanding and direction. The results from my early treatments with EDMR are nothing short of amazing. I getting just a taste of what’s in store and cannot find the words to describe what it’s like in my head and heart now. I have hope. Again, thank you. Bob

  2. Jesus named satan ‘deceiver’and that is exactly the point, blindness, if we knew we were being deceived we would not be deceived, that is why we do not see the trauma untill Father reveals it to us praise Him. I like Sarah’s view of struggling to receive Gods Love (unworthyness) another rotten deception of the devil. I experienced sibling sexual abuse as a small boy.
