Free from Shame

And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. This is how it was in the beginning. People walked with God, in a beautiful garden, totally naked! Although it was clearly a physical nakedness I also believe it was a nakedness of heart. They had nothing to hide from God, absolutely nothing at all. Shame was something that they had NEVER known! Can you imagine that - never, ever having known shame?

We carry all sorts of shame. Most woman are ashamed of some of their physical features, most women are ashamed of bad things they have done and most woman are ashamed of who they have not become! Shame is a big part of modern living, isn’t it? So let’s get to the bottom of this so that we can live a life that is free from shame. Let’s get back to walking carefree with God in this garden we call Earth. 

Since we are on a gardening theme, let’s use some gardening principles. If you want to get rid of a bothersome plant or tree, you have to dig it up by the roots. If you don’t get rid of the roots the tree will keep popping up again and again. It will NEVER go away no matter what you do. You simply have to dig up the root! So let’s plan our gardening project by first analysing the situation and then forming a ‘root lifting’ strategy.

So what is the root of shame? Let’s take a peek back at Adam and Eve. They didn’t have any shame and then they did have shame. The first observation is that they were ‘not ashamed’ and then what they became ‘ashamed’ about was of course their nakedness.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
