In my journey of addressing shame and writing a book on overcoming it, I’ve made some profound discoveries. One of them is that our loudest struggles often appear larger than they actually are. Just because our shame has a LOUD voice, it doesn’t always mean it’s the largest part of who we are.
Loud Parts Say So Much
When we face blockades that stand between us and our destiny, it’s crucial to realize that our loudest part isn’t necessarily the majority. It might seem like it, but our true selves lie in the choices we make, the intentions we set, and the direction our hearts lead us. Sometimes, a small wounded part by past experiences can become incredibly LOUD, demanding to have our attention and control us.
But here’s the truth: we don’t have to let that small part drive the bus. It doesn’t define who we are. It’s an unhealed aspect that needs attention, compassion, and healing, but it doesn’t have to have preeminence or control of our lives. We need to be curious about it without allowing it to dictate our lives. Our choices, aligned with our purpose and guided by the Life of Jesus, reflect our true identity.
While the Life of Christ has already paid for everything, He sometimes invites us to dive deeper into our struggles in a more intense and intentional way. This is to discover what they teach us about ourselves and our relationship with Him. By sitting with Him about them, we can uncover profound lessons about ourselves, our lives, and His gracious and gloriousness. Ignoring or brushing aside our challenges won’t allow us to grow. We need to face them and learn from them, allowing Christ to reveal His glory in the process.
My Actual Choice and Direction
As I navigate my own struggles with shame and uncover what prevents me from experiencing victory, wholeness, and living in alignment with my divine design, I’ve realized the importance of addressing these smaller, louder parts. It requires curiosity, compassion, and a willingness to listen to the Spirit and heal.
I’ve had the honor of working with many men, listening to their struggles, and engaging with curiosity to uncover hidden obstacles and face blockades head-on. It’s a beautiful journey of discovering who we truly are and experiencing deliverance through Christ’s love and guidance. The roadblock is not the focus, just the invitation to explore and experience His victory.
If any of this resonates with you—if you feel blocked, hindered, or disconnected from your divine design and spiritual DNA—I encourage you to reach out. Let’s have a coaching call to explore the possibility of working together. Together, we can address the roadblocks and embrace the Life Christ desires for us.
