No more shame

No more shame: Rev. Dr. Gerald F. Poe, Jr.

Family, friends, one and all,


Shame is an emotion that can be difficult to understand and process. It is often associated with feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and embarrassment. However, it is important to recognize that shame can be a powerful motivator for positive change. It can be a helpful tool in developing self-awareness and compassion. When used in a constructive way, shame can be a powerful tool for personal growth and development. Let’s get into it a little here and carve out some details on how not to internalize it, but begin to smile again after it’s affects. Stay with me

No longer do we need to feel ashamed of our past. We can learn to forgive ourselves and move forward with love and acceptance. We can learn to stand up for ourselves and tell the truth, no matter how difficult it may be. We can learn to be proud of ourselves and our accomplishments, no matter how small they may be seem. They are still accomplishments!

It is time to free ourselves from the shame and guilt of bad decisions based on emotional trauma and needs. Somebody help me here.. We can learn to forgive ourselves, stand up for ourselves, and be proud of who we are. Through emotional intelligence, we can learn to make better decisions and move forward with confidence and self-love.

You see, It is important to love God and all that he does for us. He is always there to provide us with guidance and support. We can learn to trust in his plan and never be ashamed again. Again, By utilizing emotional intelligence and learning to forgive ourselves, we can free ourselves from making bad decisions and become the best version of ourselves.

Ok, ok, ok… so what is EI – Emotional intelligence is an important concept that helps us to understand and manage our emotions, as well as those of others. It is a valuable tool that can help us to recognize, understand, and express our emotions in a healthy and productive way. By developing our emotional intelligence, we can learn to identify and address our own feelings of shame, and those of others. Learning how to use our emotional intelligence can help us to better understand our own feelings and the feelings of those around us, allowing us to work through our shame and move forward in a positive direction. It is a powerful tool that can help us to create healthier and more meaningful relationships, both with ourselves and with those around us. Ok, stay with me here… 🙂

God’s word is full of encouragement and comfort when it comes to shame. He tells us that we don’t have to be ashamed of who we are, and that He has given us a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. He reminds us that He will never leave us, and that He will always be with us in our times of need. He also encourages us to seek Him when we are feeling overwhelmed with shame, and to trust in Him to help us through our struggles. God’s love and mercy are always available to us, and He is ready to help us feel better. Let’s pray together!

Heavenly Father,

we come to you today in prayer, asking for your love and forgiveness for any times we have felt ashamed of ourselves and our past. We thank you for your grace and mercy that you so freely offer us, and we ask that you would fill us with your strength and courage to press on and smile again. We know that you have promised to never leave us or forsake us, and that you are always with us.

Your word in the Bible speaks of your love and grace, and we are comforted by the scriptures that remind us not to be ashamed. For example, Romans 10:11 says “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” And in Psalm 25:3 it says “No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame.” We thank you for the reminder that we can always come to you for help and strength.

We ask that you would continue to fill us with your love and grace, and that you would give us the strength to keep going and to not be ashamed of our past. We thank you for your goodness and mercy, and for your continued presence in our lives. In Jesus’ name,


Be lifted in spirit and proud again! Smile again! Live again! I am so proud of you for no longer feeling ashamed and forgiving yourself. It takes a lot of courage to live your life and utilize emotional intelligence to make better decisions, rather than just reacting to emotional trauma and needs. You should also be proud of yourself for standing up for yourself, telling the truth, and loving God. Never be ashamed again, and keep on doing what you know is right!

Take good care and Gods love and speed in everything you do! Powerful you are! Believe it!
