It was a beautiful summer’s day several years ago and I was sitting on a park bench with one of my closest friends at the time. Externally, my life looked great. I was doing particularly well in my career and finances.
But on the inside, it was a different story. My life was like that analogy Jesus gave about the grave with whitewashed walls outside but full of death on the inside. At that point in my life, I was full of pain, bitterness, condemnation, guilt and fear.
And…I hated myself. No joke. I really hated my own guts because I believed God was angry with me and disapproved of me.
I believed I had let him down so badly that his disappointment with me could never be overcome. I felt all those great plans he had in mind for me were now irreversibly destroyed. I had gone from being that person who was on fire for Jesus and doing marvellous things in his name, to the sinful, disobedient one who had a child out of wedlock. I was stuck in a deep, dark prison of self-loathing and I had no idea how to get out or move forward. And of course, the devil was having a field day holding me captive to a past I hated.
I had never voiced those feelings to anyone but that day I chose to share them with my friend. And thank God I did. Because that conversation marked the beginning of my turning point. Slowly but surely, I began to re-calibrate my believing and started to receive God’s lavish, excessive, and super-abounding love towards me. In a short while, the destructive mindset and emotional strongholds that had held me bound were completely shattered and I was free!
The healing process was so complete that even my memories were affected. It got to the point when the events in my past that once invoked shame, pain, fear and guilt every time I thought of them only stirred up joy and gratitude to God. The painful sting was completely gone and I knew without a shadow of doubt that I would receive double for my shame!
