Healing Conversation Frozen

• Greg Boyd

When the soul is touched in a way that God never meant it to be touched

In the game of Freeze Tag, when a person is touched by a member of the opposite team, they are “frozen” and can not move. The only way to be set free is to have a member of your own team touch you.

It is similar with the soul. When we are “touched” in some traumatic way, we become frozen. When the soul is touched in a way that God never meant it to be touched (sexual abuse, abandonment, etc.), we stop growing in that area of our life. The only way to be set free again is to be touched by Jesus Christ.

The body is another analogy that works. When the body is severely injured, it goes into a state of shock. So also with the soul.

What heals us is to hear God say what he said in Jeremiah 31, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” To know that God loved us back in those difficult times helps us today.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
