Turning Shame into Freedom
All of us are aware of things in our lives that rob us of our freedom to be the complete person God made us to be. These issues in our lives are often buried in our past but still work powerfully to keep us imprisoned and immobilized in the present. Many unresolved concerns from the past are buried in shame and are very difficult for us to examine. Shame is one of the most powerful emotions in our lives and yet its influence is seldom recognized or talked about. The Bible has a great deal to say about shame, including how God wants to turn our negative experiences with shame into something positive. Wherever we live with an area of unhealed shame, we are unable to function in the grace of God in that area. ‘Negative’ shame robs us of God’s power in our lives and the capacity to fulfill our destiny. Therefore, it is imperative that as Christians we understand how to turn shame into a positive healing experience that will prepare us to be used in the Kingdom of God. This book is designed to bring healing to a very needy area of emotional development and will be taught with sensitivity and care.
