Where is my spouse?

Who is this they sent home to me?

There must be some mistake!”
 
 

Know that you are not alone

Warriors’ Angels Is Here For You
 
 
If you are the spouse of a member of the Armed Services struggling with Combat Trauma, we want you to know that we at Christ Presbyterian Church are very grateful – not only for your loved one’s sacrificial service to our country, but also for yours.  More so, we understand the difficulties you may be currently experiencing due to your spouse’s trauma.  Consequently, though we may not even know you by name, our prayer network, prayed for you and continues to do so.
 
When a warrior suffering from PTSD comes home from war, or from his or her daily duties as a first responder, interaction with family is often very different from before.  Anger, over-reacting, paranoia, fits of rage, disinterest in intimacy, lethargy, substance abuse – these and other symptoms may become the new context of family life.  The symptoms of PTSD can end up traumatizing sufferer and spouse alike.  This is called “Secondary Trauma.”  The spouse can begin to manifest the same PTSD symptoms as the combat warrior (or sometimes different ones) and requires the similar care.  Secondary Trauma can also show up in the children of a PTSD sufferer as well.
 

We know that one of your primary objectives in life right now is to establish stability, peace, joy and strength in your home once again.  Consequently, we are certain that the One who created you, Who has walked by your side your whole life (whether you realize it or not) and Who loved you enough to offer Himself sacrificially on Calvary stands ready to help you. 

O my soul, march on with strength.

Judges 5:21

 
Our sincere prayer is that you would likewise “march on with strength” to support your warrior in this latest battle, to fight for you family, to experience personal restoration, and to enter a hopeful future that will be far brighter than you can now imagine.
