IDENTITY IN CHRIST
(Resolving Identity Issues for Individuals Recoveringfrom Traumas Experienced During Childhood)
“Mirror, mirror, on the wall … who am I, REALLY?” Many Christians whohave experienced trauma during their childhood may ask this questionfrequently and quietly aloud or within themselves. Simply coming to Christand living by faith through grace does not necessarily guarantee anindividual’s complete understanding of certain responses they continue tohave and feelings they experience that are not directly related to theincident of the moment. Some parts of our brain, when stimulated, take ouremotions down a “dark pathway” that is only known in the depths of ourbeing . . . sometimes never shared with an intimate friend, and rarelyunderstood within ourselves. Others may not be able to hide their feelings,and while openly “acting-out” blatantly give evidence to an obvious problem.Both scenarios, however, give a glimpse of an apparent dichotomy of thesoul.Resolving identity issues for adults recovering from traumasexperienced during childhood involves: understanding types of trauma andtheir effect on an identity, recognizing the main six negative emotions fueledby lies believed during and after the trauma, self-regulating these emotionsby applying the truth about the individual’s identity in Christ.
 
IDENTITY IN CHRIST 
– Dani Ramsey Page
2Bill and Gloria Gaither understood the depth of pain the human soulcapacitates, and the contrasting joy the Lord wants us to experience, whenthey penned the beloved hymn He Touched Me.

May the words speak to allhearts, and bring the truth of the song in each life.“Shackled by a heavy burden, Since I met this blessedSavior,‘Neath a load of guilt and shame Since He cleansed and made me whole Then the hand of Jesus touched me, I will never cease to praiseHim --And now I am no longer the same. I’ll shout it while eternity rolls.
He touched me,O He touched me,And O the joy that floods my soul;Something happened, and now I know,He touched me and made me whole.
 The Lord Himself has a heart for pain and suffering as we can clearlysee as He spoke of Himself in Isaiah 61: 1 - 2

, and Luke 4:18, by saying:
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hathanointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me

to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives,and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; … to comfort all that mourn; … to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, … that He might be glorified. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair thewaste cities, the desolations of many generations. … everlasting joy shall be unto them … I will direct their work in truth … “ 
May the Lord bless the reading of His Word, and may His direction of  Truth always repair, rebuild, and restore. May His servants walk in Hisanointing and continue to carry on the work of the Master by ministering tothe meek, broken-hearted, captives, and prisoners who can be set free byHis Truth (John 8:32) alone. May all who have been traumatized as childrenlook in the mirror and see a portrait of His beauty, and live in everlasting joybecause of their identity in Christ.
TYPES OF TRAUMA
For the sake of brevity, we are creating some parameters; theseinclude: (1) the individuals we are discussing are adults who have come tothe saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and are making genuineattempts to walk with the Lord by being obedient to His Word; additionally,(2) these believers have traumas that were experienced as children,regardless as to whether these memories are completely remembered ornot.
