Poem: That Captivating Shame


By Lydia Sellers >>>

Shame captivates us;

It wants us reveling in failures.

Shame distracts us,

Clouding all our prayers.

Shame deludes us;

It says, You are in too deep.

Shame deceives us;

It says, You have no power to defeat.

But God, the Truth-Teller

Is our rescue in reach.

God, the Great Forgiver

Is our source of victory.

God, the Shame-Lifter

Fights to see us relieved.

God awaits, oh daughter,

So look up, look up and see!

His face longs to shine upon all who

Turn from shame and believe.
