"This Won't Be the End of My Story"
Artist releases first single written in honor of the healing journey she started with Discovering MErcy.
"This song is very dear to my heart. It’s RAW and REAL! It’s straight from my heart to yours! It comes from a season of feeling beat up and knocked down by life- circumstances-emotions, while envisioning myself getting beat up repeatedly, a cry arose from my spirit "THIS WON'T BE THE END OF MY STORY!"
Special thank you to Christine for sharing with us!
More on No Longer Held Captive By Shame
Audrey and I have watched the emotion of shame be a captor to survivors. Shame and it's felt captivity is common to all mankind. To be human is to feel shame.
During the past seven years, we have counseled hundreds of survivors held captive by shame. We have found the tools explained in this video are keys to shatter shame's overwhelming captivity. Folks who understand these tools are able to walk out of captivity into freedom.
NOTE: This talk was recorded during a Sunday Morning church service. In the talk I use the term "inner critic.” Discovering Mercy believes this inner voice is a strong protector of the heart. It is not to be viewed pejoratively but rather as language to help understand the heart’s desire for connection to another.
