Author - Graham Bretherick All of us are aware of things in our lives that rob us of our freedom to be the complete person God made us to be. These issues in our lives are often buried in our past but still work powerfully to keep us imprisoned and immobilized in the present. These issues of the past are buried in shame and are very difficult for us to examine. Shame is one of the most powerful emotions in our lives and yet its influence is seldom recognized or talked about. The Bible has a great deal to say about shame, including how God wants to turn our negative experiences with shame into something positive.
