I came across this video on a blog today and wouldn't be doing you justice if I did not share.
"At birth, we begin wearing labels that identify us... And as we grow older, whether written by the cruelty of others, or our own poor choices, those labels can become more personal, hurtful, and even outright devastating. The promise Jesus Christ makes is that His mercy will restore our hurt and shame, and give us a new label...a label that identifies us as made complete, whole, forgiven, and restored through being adopted into His family." - West Ridge Church
If you watched the first and were in awe as much as I was... here is another:
Do you have a cardboard testimony? I read one of the comments under these videos on youtube and it said, 'These dark secrets have been forgiven so there is no shame." Wow... these are very emotional videos and I just don't know that I would have the courage to show the world MY cardboard testimony. Would you?
