The Burden of Shame

Temi Enemigin

I breathe in music, and exhale words tastefully woven for your soul's pleasure. When high on sarcasm, I could smash your ribs into fine pieces. But whether on a stage, singing out my heart, on in Solitude, scribbling out mysteries, my greatest aim is to bless humanity with the essence of my being.

    Wow! I was blessed by this piece! Thanks Temi! It takes courage to really follow Jesus! Because following him is not popular so definitely there wud be fear! And shame because u won’t be understood! But Jesus understands shame, he stood alone and was rejected by all even the very ones dearest to him denied him, so he perfectly understands the emotion but he has given us the strength to do as he did! Continously keep the joy of ur faith before u and no matter what let no one or class of persons deny u of the joy andDESPISE THE SHAME.

      Amen, Sis. If Jesus endured the cross and despised the shame, why shouldn’t I? It wouldn’t be easy to take all the insults and persecutions, but His grace is sufficient.

    “… I looked upon on the cross and found my shame hung. Then I ditched the urge to gift my devotion to people who didn’t spill their blood for me on Calvary”.

      We’re in good company. Members of The household of faith experience such. But God doesn’t put on us what we can’t bear. His yoke is easy, his burden light. Let’s take up our cross and follow him.
