I fixed myself edamame for lunch. I added tuna and a few sun chips to the plate. Healthy and yummy right? I ate one or two edamame a few bites of my tuna and as I went to pick up another edamame I couldn't finish it. I thought to myself I love these. As I sat dumb founded I remembered the last time I had eaten those were the night I came down with the horrible puke virus a few weeks ago. I had attached that virus with the very taste of the edamame and I no longer wanted it. So I put them in a bag for my kids to eat later. Our senses are so fascinating to me. Because we can take something we have seen, heard or tasted and attach it to something that stirs either pleasant or unpleasant and sometimes horrifying memories. Just like with me I attached a bad memory aka throwing my guts up with the taste of what use to be my favorite snack. The enemy uses the senses to gain control and to attack in those vulnerable moments with the hopes of making you feel shame and guilt. I work with teenage girls who have been rescued from human trafficking and their triggers are things such as pizza places, white sheets, to smells of cologne and for me those are normal things but to them its a horrific nightmare. I pray for the day they no longer see images that haunt them. I Today don't hide from the shadows of your past instead take refuge. Gods love for you is lavish it heals, redeems and what the enemy meant for bad God will make good! Be set free today!
