From Shame to Freedom

From Shame to Freedom

ON THE LEFT: I was overwhelmed and filled with shame. Getting healthy felt unattainable. One morning, alone in my bathroom, I cried out to God, “Please help me, this feels hopeless!”. I was in the pit of despair and couldn’t see a way out.

A few days later, our Justin sat me down for what would be a life-changing conversation asking me to get healthy. I agreed and wholeheartedly set out on my pilgrimage.

ON THE RIGHT: F R E E I am learning what walking in freedom looks like on a daily basis. I am more broken than I have ever been, but God, in his steadfast love, is teaching me to run to him with my hurt, angst, and sorrow instead of food. In his loving kindness, God is giving me a deep abiding joy that no other temporary ‘thing’ could ever produce.

Oh friend, wherever you are on your journey today, cry out to Jesus! (Psalm 103)

Are you discouraged? Pour out your heart to Him. (Psalm 62:8)

Are you weary? Run to Jesus, he will give you rest! ( Matthew 11:28-30)

Are you overwhelmed? Cast your cares upon the Lord, He cares about you! (1 Peter 5:7)

Do you long to know this Jesus I speak of?
Cry out to Him! The Bible says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10: 9

Wherever you are, I pray you are encouraged in your faith and refreshed for this new day. ~ Missy
