The Philippians 4 Project story…

Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. (Philippians 4:6-7, The Message Bible)

“As I heard my Christian psychologist quote this in my counseling session to encourage me, God was opening a doorway for me to be set free from trauma-related suffering. The PTSD, severe anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia didn’t compare with the nightmare of intrusive thoughts I had been powerless to eliminate.

Intrusive thoughts within the context of PTSD are repetitive, unwanted, upsetting thoughts that flood one’s mind, against one’s will. They come from the subconscious part of the brain. One who is struggling with intrusive thoughts can’t simply choose not to have them. Instead, the harder one tries to not have intrusive thoughts, the more persistent the brain produces them. My PTSD was in full swing, so I was having intrusive thoughts nearly every minute of every day. They were ruining my life, robbing me of any measure of peace or joy.

After that counseling session, I looked up the verse he had quoted and read the chapter around it. Reading Philippians 4 in a different bible translation (The Message Bible) helped me see this chapter in a new light. I found the hope I needed, a pattern to follow. Taking the principles found in Philippians 4, I made a meditation and journaling template that I used to start each day.

Within three months I was set free from intrusive thoughts. I’m convinced daily meditation on the positive attributes of God helped my subconscious mind begin to stand down. The more God sets me free, layer by layer, the more I can’t keep it to myself any longer.”

The Philippians 4 Project is about just one thing:

“This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.” (Colossians 1:6 NLT)

All over the world we want to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. This is our purpose. To testify to how God has changed our lives and brought his healing peace into our struggles. We want to help people experience the life-changing love of Jesus Christ.

Everyone’s story can be redeemed. What’s yours?
