+David said longingly, “O that someone would give me water to drink from the well of Bethlehem that is by the gate!”+ 2 Samuel 23:15.
God hears the longings of every heart. And His generosity always surpases our imagination!
Oh what a well He provided to Bethlehem, what a water sprinkled out of that well!
Jesus came to quench the thirst of each of us, and of those in the past, and of those of the future… in Him our desires find rest.
Lord, teach today our hearts to drink from the well of Your abundant mercy, may any thirst in us be satisfied with Your living water and Your steadfast love.
+You are my hiding place and my shield.+ Ps119
Through life we learn to hide in many places and behind many shields. Loneliness, ignorance, cynicism, relationships, control, anger, bitterness, detachment, shame, self-pity, accusations…those are just several out of our long list… However these “shelters” always leave us vulnerable and unprotected, wounded or instruments of wounds to others…
Lord, be our hiding place today. Help us to learn to hide only in You in whatever circumstances.
For many years, my life was bound by toxic shame. Because of it, I suffered paralysis in relationships - both close ones and new ones, and with same gender and opposite gender. Many times, I was unable to express myself, engage in ordinary situations, or accept good challenges, therefore wasting a lot of life's giving moments, which God was granting me on my way. I am so sorry for that.
About nineteen years ago, I personally accepted Jesus as my personal savior. He immediatel...y started to invite me to come out of my toxic shame prison. He was consistent in this. And, I must say, he has remained “daily faithful” in this invitation through all those 19 years of our journey together.
To be honest, leaving the toxic shame prison and following his lead was a huge challenge for me. It was a process, and at times a real fight, and I still sometimes find myself in it!
However, with every year following Jesus, my freedom grew, and I became more free, happy, and able to receive his life to me, as well as to offer more authentic love and life for others.
Therefore, my heart burns with desire to share those gifts and lessons about shame that I received through him and his body, and my brothers and sisters, along the way.
Not every shame experience is wrong or harmful, but not every one is beneficial! How tremendously helpful it was for me to learn the difference between healthy shame and toxic shame – it surely sped my personal inner healing journey.
I dedicate this short video to everyone who has suffered from toxic shame, or still finds him or herself in its prison from time to time. This video is especially for my brothers and sisters in Christ. If someone is encouraged or helped by it, that will be my reward! Be blessed.
This video is about the main differences between HEALTHY SHAME and TOXIC SHAME with my narration. (English is not my mother tongue, I appologize for possible language mistakes)
TO BE A DISCIPLE OF CHRIST MEANS TO BE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER...
May the broken bond with His Father, my Father, your Father, our Father in our hearts be restored and any fear or disbelief be quenched. He loves us! Happy New Year! Joy joy joy
