I Am (Not) Ashamed

Proverbs 11:2 "When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom."

Psalms 29:2 "O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me."

Psalms 69:19 "You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; All my adversaries are before You."

Hebrews 12:2 "Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2 Corinthians 7:9-11 "I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death. For behold what earnestness this very thing, this godly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter."

It's All About You

I have hurt

I got pain

I have burdens

I got shame

All these feelings

I try to hide

As they build up

Deep inside

I need help

I need grace

I need mercy

I want faith

I need Jesus

I need his love

I want it, crave it

From above

I'm sick of crying

All these tears

Living every

Day in fear


I need that


I'll do that

I crave life

Not death's grave

So, what I hear

You speak or Say

I will listen

I'll Obey

I'll start over

Every day

I ask God,

Fill my heart

Fill my mind

Don't you agree

It's been time

See in the end

It aint even

about me and what I do

Even if every day

I am made new,

No, it's always been about you

And what you've done

So someone like me

Can feel real love

Have you ever felt lost in your walk with Christ. Lately I haven't been posting as much because I feel like I have not truly been living up to my true potential. Sometimes, when I begin failing God, I get stuck in a hole, and then I just get deeper and deeper in it. I think maybe, this is normal. I am anything but perfect, but my shame it haunts me. It is like a disease that wants to separate me from God. It can be dark and hard to see past it.

In moments like this, I pray and I wait. I wait for God to refill my spirit with hope. Every day he strives to do so, but like a patient father that he is, he gives me time to refresh my soul, and remind myself of his love, and that this life isn't about me and who I am or become, but that it is about what he has done, and what Jesus has done, to show me, and everyone else who feels like they will never be enough, that we are loved. That even the worst of us, can be loved.

I will begin writing more posts soon, but for now, I will wait until I am ready to write in the spirit again.

I am Ashamed Of Who I am, But I am Not Ashamed of who God Is.

Prayer For Today

Dear Heavenly Father,

Help me humbly come before you today, I want to say thank you for your love and kindness and patience towards me and all of your children. I pray today that you will refill me with your spirit and remind me who I am in you and who I need to be while I walk with you. I want to fulfill your purpose for my life to bring you honor and glory. I am ashamed and ask forgiveness for my ways lately, I know I can not reach perfection without Jesus blood covering me. So I am thankful and grateful for every promise you have made and fulfilled for a sinner like me.

In Jesus Christs Name I Pray, Amen.
