No More Shame

But from our youth the shameful thing has devoured all for which our fathers labored, their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters. Let us lie down in our shame, and let our dishonor cover us. For we have sinned against the Lord our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even to this day, and we have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God.
Jeremiah 3:24-25

Shame. We need a remedy.

We know when we have sinned. And we know when others have sinned against us. And we are ashamed.

Our enemy wants to use that shame to manipulate us, to make us feel unworthy. To make us hide from God. Remember Eden?

But our God understands our weakness.

For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Psalm 103:14

And He wants to heal us. He wants to make us whole and remove our shame.

Those who look to him are radiant,
    and their faces shall never be ashamed.
Psalm 34:5

That is why I write. My face was once covered in shame. I once hid from God. But He pursued me until I couldn't resist Him anymore. When I turned to Him, He removed my shame and gave me a radiant face with nothing to hide.

I want you to know that freedom, that joy. Freedom is scary and painful at first, but it is the only way to live, to truly live. He offers the same to you. Will you look to Him?
