Naked and Not Ashamed



Where are you? This is the question that god posed to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. You already know that they hid themselves because of the sin they had committed. They were naked and ashamed. Sometimes in our walks we feel the same way. Naked and ashamed! I know because I've been there many, many times. But we should not allow sin to keep us from our heritage with God. There is nothing stopping you from picking yourself up and dusting yourself off, except for being naked and ashamed. Do not let the devil torment you for the rest of your life on mistakes of the past. You "ARE NOT" your circumstances. You are more than what you've done, been, said, etc... You are a child of God, special in His sight and it's time to walk with dignity.

But before you can come back to His glory, you have to be naked and not ashamed. He wanted you to be naked in the first place, which is why Adam and Eve came to be that way. It wasn't until they came to know sin that they became ashamed. Confess your sins, so that you can be forgiven and then repent. Once you repent, you can begin again as a woman walking in newness. How many times have you wished you could just start over. Life doesn't give us that luxury, but Christ does! Thank God He forgives and then throws our transgressions into the sea of forgiveness. Take this opportunity to live the best life now!! Cleansed of sin, free from burdens and filled with grace. Today is your day and this is your time. Take it by force if you have to, but go for it like your life depended on it. Because it does!!

Now that you have been forgiven by Him, can you forgive yourself? Don't let your carnal man hinder your spirit man from getting all that is owed to you. There are no limits here in this thing called grace. Be steadfast in your journey and "never" look back. I'm talking to those of you that feel as if you can't have a new beginning because there is just too much damage done already. There is always time for you to get it right. Do you want it bad enough? Don't let fear stop you from being the person you've always wanted to be. Fear is of the devil and he wants you to stay stuck in his madness. An endless cycle of defeat, regret, and shame. But I'm here to let you know that the devil is a liar. You are now free! Run toward your destiny and take back your pride, your innocence, your glory and run with it.....IT'S YOURS!!!!
