4/22/24 MondayMatters: Surprised By Shame

Have you ever been surprised, shocked or sandbagged by some negative thought, some moment of discouragement, depression, or fear that just nearly overwhelmed you? Maybe it was anxiety, maybe obsessive thoughts about hurt, maybe shame; those thoughts that the devil will use to defeat us. They come like a thief, to steal, kill, and destroy. Here are some steps to take when you are under attack. Click the link to watch the video.

Three Observations:

1. Don’t be surprised when negative thoughts come.

2. Thinking creates feelings. It doesn’t change the truth.

3. Guilt is about what I’ve done. Shame tries to say what I am.

Five Steps To Stop The Shame:

1. Examine your thoughts to discover the source.

2. Look into any unresolved issues like, unconfessed sin, unmade amends, or unforgiven hurts.

3. Ask God for clear directions.

4. Be obedient to that.

5. Give your history to God and accept His present and future for you. 2 Corinthians 5:17
