Jesus uses his Church to help restore those who are suffering from toxic shame. The Church is like a body where every part is needed, belongs, and can be loved.
Everyone is addicted to something. We have two bottomless pits that never seem can be filled. We then find ourselves hostage to being controlled by something of which we are ashamed. Discover how you can find freedom and stay free.
It's hard to be honest! But why? And why does Jesus refer to Himself as light? The key to being free from shame is connected to both our honesty and the truth of Jesus.
Toxic shame can make us believe we have no worth or value. When we don't feel accepted or loved we don't feel like we have any worth or value. Jesus tells a story of two brothers who felt like they had no value.
The truth of who we are in Jesus removes our toxic shame and gives us courage to be honest with God, ourselves, and each other. Listen as Pastor Kasey Robinson teaches us to accept that we are accepted as we are.
Toxic shame makes us hide from others and hide from God. What are you hiding from others and from God? Listen as Pastor Kasey Robinson teaches us that believing "I am enough", is how we begin to free ourselves from this shame.
Shame is hard to understand, and harder to identify. That is also the problem of shame. Left unidentified, it can begin to identify us. When shame begins to shape our identity it becomes toxic. But it's not just a problem one person can have, we all carry shame.
