Day 20: A Short and Sweet One- Today, ask God to help you recognize the ways in which he is already at work in your life. Allow yourself to dream audaciously about how God might lead you into even more opportunities to use your life for the benefit of others.
Your story didn’t end when shame began. God is still writing it. It is a story of grace and redemption, and it is far more beautiful than you can even imagine. Shame may try to disqualify you, but if God has called you to do something, he will give you all the radiance you need to shine.
Consider: If ministry begins right now, right where you are, how do you sense God may be inviting you to shine in and through your current situation?
Prayer: God, lift up my eyes and remove the shame in my heart so that I can see the story you are writing through me. I love you. Amen.
