"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Keeping on the topic of shame, since that is an area I struggle a lot with, I am learning that God does NOT shame us.

Thank You Lord that You Do Not Shame Me!!

That is so very comforting to know.

Some of us may believe this way that God does shame us.

I know I have falling back into this belief many times.

Growing up in shame, it has been across the board with me that God is even included in my believing that He is ashamed of me.

I mean if God shames us, then what is the purpose of even going on?

We could not even work together with Him on our struggles for fear of having to be perfect.

I have had enough shame put on me in my life.

For the shame that I have carried all these years, of being sexually, verbally abused, feeling worthless and guilty I am beginning to give over to You Lord! It is not mine to own!

I have been emotionally tired most my life carrying unnecessary shame that was not mine to bear in the first place.

My prayer each day is that I accept this truth in my heart more and more. God does NOT shame me, God does NOT cast blame to shame me!

I want to be set free so badly!

Even though it is promised we can have "complete" freedom from all the pain and suffering we have experienced in this world once in Heaven, we can also experience the freedoms here on earth that He wants to set us free from as well!

I like this video!


  1. I enjoyed this video.

  2. JBR like the video. You're one that examines yourself. As you continue to do so by the word of God, you'll become stronger. As honest saints of God we must be able to see ourselves as God sees us. God Bless.

  3. I am learning that shame is self-created by some judgemental thought or evaluation that I have. This gets projected onto God. And, you are right God is not shaming, but we are.

  4. Can't imagine when that time comes...that He will reveal Himself to us...Great song! By His grace, you will overcome! Blessings to you JBR.

  5. I've heard:
    Guilt is the feeling that you did something bad.
    Shame is the feeling that you are something bad.

    We are all as God made us.
    Take responsibility for those things you have done and will do, for everything within your control.
    Let God take responsibility for the rest.
    You are as you are meant to be, perfectly imperfect, exactly as God intended.

    There is no shame in that.

  6. Overcoming with HIM,

  7. JBR,

    I love your own personal advice to yourself. My favorite quote at this time, "if the devil invites you to a pity party, don't go!"

    Here's hoping that you have better days on your horizon.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. You're right, God would never shame His child. Correct us - yes. Shame us? No. How would this heal us? Guilt is a different story. We must each own up to our own sins and seek forgiveness. The good thing is: God heals that too!

  9. Thank you for the picture of complete freedom in Heaven. I can see my Son there now. I can not wait to get there!

  10. Amen. Thanks for sharing. Hugs to you.
