The Shame Game

The Shame Game

 

The other day, I decided to write a quick poem on shame that God put on my heart.  I discussed shame in regards to how it fits into trauma over a month ago.  You can find that post here.

Name is shame.

Yes, it’s shame.

And it fully wants to reign.

In our soul.

Take control.

Makes you always feel the pain.

 

Don’t you tell.

Keep it closed.

Never heal.

Fear imposed.

 

Empathy breaks it free.

Brings the shame.

To its knee.

 

He despised.

He denied.

Took his place on that tree.

 

Name is shame.

Lost its gain.

Christ has set the captives free.

 

 

Verses to Meditate on

Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. (Isaiah 61: 7)

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (Romans 5:5)

That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day. (2 Timothy 1: 12)

 

God bless,
