Shame is REMOVED and made POWERLESS by love and love alone
The thing with shame, is that it presents you with something you are powerless to go back and change, and then gets into your today, and your tomorrow, and seeks to rob you of what you have left.
Shame makes you feel powerless, and seeks to keep you trapped in the past, convincing you that there is nothing you can do. But YOU ARE POWERFUL THROUGH LOVE!
Love empowers you to live better and BE better. Love draws you in, showing you how powerful you are. Love casts away fear. Love FOCUSES ON THE FUTURE, not the past. Love magnifies what you can change, giving you hope. Love overcomes fear & shame.
So, when faced with shame, Forgive yourself. Clean up the mess within your power to clean up. Then Embrace LOVE. Remember you have so many “tomorrows” to do bucket loads of good. Leave the past where it belongs; in the past. Focus on redeeming the future, and not on what is impossible to undo. Remember GOD DOES NOT CONDEMN YOU!
Lift up your head beloved. Embrace Love & Be powerful against shame.
Isaiah 50:7-8 (NKJV)
7 “For the Lord God will help Me;
Therefore I will not be disgraced;
Therefore I have set My face like a flint,
And I know that I will not be ashamed.
8 He is near who justifies Me;
Who will contend with Me?
Let us stand together.
Who is My adversary?
Let him come near Me.
