Soar! In 66 days
Romans 8:1: "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." When we come to Christ, all the sins we've committed in the past are washed clean. It's a truth that we rejoice in, but sometimes we can't help but feel ashamed of everything we've done. As a result, we can develop a low image of ourselves, refusing to accept the love that is freely offered to us. But Romans declares that if we trust in Jesus, we are no longer condemned. We have to rise past our shame in order to become a living testimony to what God has done in our lives.

Faith-In-Action: Living with shame is lonely and isolating. It makes you believe that no one would want to get close to you, which justifies your pushing people and God away. Recognizing the urge to isolate is essential to moving through shame. Because it is a sign that your shame identity has taken charge. When you find yourself judging others and feeling separate, this is your golden moment to begin asking questions about your experience. What story do you believe? There might be a story of shame that you've been carrying for a long time, but it's actually a role you've taken on that is optional. Start to tell yourself that this shame story doesn't have to define you. Remember that who you are is not this Story. You have been set free. "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed" John 8:36.
