There Is No More Disgrace For You

Lord, you know my private struggles concerning how I see myself, doubting my self-worth, struggling with comparison, and essentially feeling I'm not valuable and not good enough. God I do not desire to walk in shame or allow myself to regularly entertain critical and negative thoughts against my own self. 

Please help me to know on a deeply and intimately, how greatly You value me. 
Please help me to relinquish my shame—the shame You took from me—and never pick it back up. 

Thank you that there is no more disgrace for me, only love...Your amazing, unfailing love! I will hold my head high knowing I am forgiven and cleansed from my past and from every sin. I will walk in security and confidence because I am deeply valued and cherished by You. Oh my Redeemer, thank you! In Jesus’s awesome name, Amen.

“Fear not; you will no longer live in shame. Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you. You will no longer remember the shame of your youth and the sorrows of widowhood. For your Creator will be your husband; the LORD of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.” (Isaiah 54:4-5)

Thanks Julie.
These words were a precious gift to me, and I often need others to put things in to words for me just as you have.
It was confirmation, too, as God gave me that passage in Isaiah 54 after my divorce and it is very precious to me.
I needed this reminder.
God bless you.

I'm so glad! I'm always so grateful when God gives us the exact words we need to remind our hearts. :-)
