Do you feel like you’re wearing a mask? Are you hiding who you really are from everyone around you? Have you been living in a pit of shame because of choices you have made? Are you aching to experience freedom but don’t know where to begin?
It’s so easy to feel like we have to present a perfect version of ourselves to God and to our community. We hide our hurts, pain points, and addictions because of the pressure we feel to be women who have it all together. In the process, shame compounds upon shame, and we feel even more trapped by our sinful habits. But that’s not the life of freedom that God has called us to.

Ashley Abercrombie can relate to feeling captive to her sin nature and stuck in unhealthy patterns. In our chat, she shares her story of addiction, healing, and recovery. She talks about how dealing with her past helped her find Emmanuel, God who was with her, in her pain and brokenness.
The personal testimony Ashley shares emphasizes that you don’t have to hide your imperfections from God. He already knows we’re messy people. The good news is that He never expects you to clean yourself up on your own. His posture toward you is compassionate and merciful. When you’re in the middle of your mess, God still loves you and is with you as you become the person He created you to be.

You can find freedom today by recognizing that you’re in a process — one that’s ongoing and never-ending. Invite God to meet with you as you unpack your past, acknowledge where you’ve come from, and understand why you make the decisions that you do. Remember, you are never alone or too far gone to experience God’s grace and forgiveness.
Highlights from Today’s Episode:

Moving forward by acknowledging your past
Letting go of perfectionism and forgiving yourself
