On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I chatted with my friend Abbey Wedgeworth about shame. We ran the gamut on the topic of shame, moving from questions we can ask ourselves to determine whether or not we are functioning in shame, to how the gospel actually addresses shame. Listen to what she said: “In the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus we see that God is faithful to us because of his love. Not because we’re worthy. So he loves us not because we’re lovable, but we are made lovely because he sets his love on us. He makes us beautiful. In exchange for our shame he offers acceptance, honor, worth, and even glory.” Whew! If you don’t walk away from this episode encouraged, I cannot help you. So you’ll know her a little better, Abbey is a wife, mother, and nap-time writer living in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. She is passionate about helping young moms apply the riches of Christ to the realities of motherhood. You can find her writing on her blog, Risen Motherhood, Unlocking the Bible, and The Gospel Coalition.
I think you now know why I like being friends with Abbey. She has a genuine understanding of the gospel and how it intersects with everyday life and I, personally, want to be like that. If you want to talk more about the topic of shame--and I really think you will, because Abbey is helping us with some of our Instagram content this week-- you can hop over to @journeywomenpodcast on Instagram or Facebook.
