On March 28, of this year, I had the blessed opportunity to host a Women’s Prayer Breakfast at Center of Hope Community Church in Oakland, CA.
My team and I did not have a lot of time to plan this great fellowship opportunity for women But we all agreed that the Breakfast should focus on the issue of Shame!!
I was delighted to see the numbers of women who arrived early with great expectation on Saturday morning. The women had the desire to be enlightened, informed, delivered and empowered from Shame.
The atmosphere was filled with the spirit and it was high, so high that I couldn’t help to be overjoyed! The women in attendance were also very eager to receive a blessing from God!
Shame does not discriminate it affects all people regardless of race, creed, sex & or age. This universal issue evokes the feelings of humiliation, guilt and embarrassment. Shame flourishes in darkness and secret places that are hidden and buried deep within.
I realized that this issue of Shame is important to address for deliverance. The issue of Shame cloaks many people because of someone or something or some unforgettable traumatic experience that has happened in our past. It was crucial for us to discuss the topic and expose it in order for deliverance to occur.
Some examples in which Shame can be identified is in family history, relationships, divorce, abuse, and addiction.
If you are dealing with Shame today, I would like to share with you some simple tools that have Helped me in Dealing with Shame!
1-Be Honest with Yourself
Admitting to yourself that you have a problem with Shame & you are ready to address it & Be free from it!
2-Find someone who you can trust to Share your Story of Shame with-this person should be someone you can trust and be nonjudgmental, this should also occur in a trusting environment.
3-Seperate yourself from those individuals and environments that have a tendency to make you feel Shameful.
4-Understand that this issue is Bigger than Yourself, your healing is not only for yourself but also an opportunity for you to help others deal with their Shame by sharing your story.
My prayers are this has helped someone deal with their Shame & to not be Afraid & or Embarrass to Reach out for Help!!
I would like to thank Prayer Warriors for Life for suggesting such an Awesome topic as well as my team to address, confront and heal this issue of Shame to have NO MORE SHAME!!
