How To Stop Being Embarrassed & Become Empowered: Devotional 2 Peter 1:5-9

What does trying your hardest look like?

I've seen that the biggest things that have held me back in life are the excuses and the embarrassment about my own thoughts and behavior.

I still find myself wrapped in embarrassment when admitting a broken mindset to my coach--though she never judges me about it or holds it against me.

But we don't need to be embarrassed, we need to be empowered.

We need to stop making excuses to cover up our embarrassment over our thoughts, habits, and mindsets that we know deep down need transformation.

Today spend some time journaling out what makes you feel embarrassed, what excuses are you saying to yourself and others that are keeping you stuck.

*Are you ready for life coaching that can transform the embarrassment and excuses and create in you an empowered spirit to grow the qualities God wants in you and for your blessings? Let's talk Leah Mason-Virgin

Let's pray: Dear Lord God Almighty, thank You for this day. Thank You for Your love, mercy, and forgiveness.

Lord please forgive us this day our sins and our excuses to not rise up and do all that You desire for us to do and be.

Lord Jesus please help us to see our broken places that need Your healing and that need Your word prayed into them.

We thank You Jesus that You are our Savior, Redeemer, and Healer.

Please empower us Holy Spirit to face our fears, embrace transformation and change, and to build ourselves up in the qualities that make us effective for Your Kingdom agenda and for our blessings.

We sing praises to Your name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen.
