Shame is a lie
Shame locks us up and shut us down. Shame is empowered by secrets and darkness. Shame says, “You are wrong, you are bad, and you are not welcome here.” Shame lies. It says, “You can’t change. You will never be accepted. You are not enough.”
“The shame of being broken can break us worse than being broken.”– Ann Voskamp
Shame is a poison that robs us of hope. While shame is a lie, it can be broken, exposed and healed. Shame disintegrates when the unspeakable is spoken and light floods darkness. Shame dies when stories are told in safe places. A safe place is a miracle where an untold story spoken out loud can transform into a new life awakened…resurrected.
Soul liberating truth:
Your scars proved you are brave, prove that you can weather any storm. Your scars are a part of you, but you are more than the stories of your scars. Scars may come, but shame never have to.
“How might you’re scars be lending you courage?” “How might they be shared to en-courage others?"
Decide today to end the lie of shame in your life, and let yourself breathe a kind of new life.
