Shame sought to intrude in my peace places – It’s aim was to rattle me Shame reminded me with noise in my ears – Reminders were launched at me in rapid fire motions Shame taunted me, ridiculed and sought to bully me I grabbed the escape hatch from the bible fully aware that there are no temptations that our Lord hasn’t provided ways of escape Shame was answered with confidence accompanied by blessed assurances Oh, how wondrous to know that God transcends shame, pain, sorrow, and uncertainties Shame wanted in – Our Lord said, no Entrance was denied – Shame pouted and skulked away despondent and defeated Score another victory for the ways of God that manifest triumphantly.
