Denial

Someone once said, “There are two types of people on the earth—those with problems, and those in denial. And ‘de-Nile’ is a river in Egypt where people are held in bondage!”

Why women nag

  |  0 Comments

One of the greatest needs that a woman has is to feel a sense of value and acceptance from her husband, but most women don’t share that need with their spouses because they can’t take the risk of being rejected in such a sensitive area. Instead, they nag—it’s not about the socks and underwear left on the floor; the anger they are expressing is the resentment they feel at not having their emotional needs met.

Taking anxiety on yourself

  |  0 Comments

You can be quite a good Christian and even build a great ministry, and still not be able to trust fully in the loving Father to care for your needs; you end up taking all the responsibility and anxiety upon yourself.

Walking in the fathers love

  |  0 Comments

There are seasons when the Holy Spirit pours upon us and increases our awareness of God’s love falling within us. But the abiding sense of Father’s love and the healing of our souls are not just experiences that come with dramatic encounters. We can easily put too much emphasis upon experience and then place too little importance upon our everyday choices and daily walk in Father’s love. Dwelling in Father God’s embrace is often a process that is daily walked out through our interactions in everyday relationships.

Deep cleansing

  |  0 Comments

If there is an area of darkness in your life in which you may have received forgiveness but have not sensed the deep cleansing of the shame that you feel, you may want to find a trusted prayer partner to pray with you. “Confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much” (James 5: 16).

When pain outweighs shame…

  |  0 Comments

When our pain outweighs our shame, then we are ready for change. As she brought her sin into the light, the love of God wondrously washed over her, and she went home with the hope and faith to be open and honest with her husband. Late that night, she shared the experience with her husband. He broke down weeping, pleading for forgiveness for not understanding and for the pain he had put her through for many years. He took her into the bathtub and washed her from head to toe and anointed her with oil, praying that God would cleanse her from every sense of shame and uncleanness. Then they had one of the greatest nights of their life, just a few years late.

Confess to one another

  |  0 Comments

For over 15 years in their marriage she could not fulfill his sexual needs because of the shame she carried. She told how they were both Christians and virgins before they were married; they were saving themselves for the wedding night. But one night she got mad at her dad and went to a bar, only to end up drunk for the first time. In a drunken stupor, she unwillingly ended up in a car in the parking lot having sex with a man. The next day she felt so ashamed. She asked God to forgive her, and He did the first time she asked. But she was too ashamed to tell anyone, especially her future husband. She ended up living in darkness. A few weeks later she learned that she was pregnant. The shame increased, and so did the darkness, even though she was already forgiven. Forgiveness of sin and cleansing of sin are two different things. Out of desperation she had an abortion. She asked God every hour of every day to forgive her, and He did. But because she chose to hide everything, the enemy had grounds to traffic in her life with accusation, self-condemnation, and shame. The wedding day came. The husband who had chosen purity expected one of the best nights of his life, but her darkness invaded his light. The shame kept her from the wonderful joy that God had intended for that night. All through their marriage the sexual relationship suffered terribly and became a point of daily contention in the life of this sincere Christian couple. She was totally forgiven—but the power of darkness stole the intimacy and love for which God created them.

Light

  |  0 Comments

The blood does not cover what we leave hidden in darkness and refuse to uncover. “If we walk in the light… the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1: 7). We can confess our sin to God, and He forgives us the first time we ask, but we can still carry the shame of our sin because of guilt and the fear of anyone ever finding out about it. This has the power to steal years of intimacy from our life and relationships.
