    This post brings out an important truth.
    On one hand, I often find myself trying to justify my way around feelings of shame. Yet, on the other extreme, I will wallow in blackness for weeks, sometimes. Too frequently, I’m ashamed of things that simply take my pride down a bit.

    I suppose that makes *me* the idol to which I am most likely to bow. :(

    Your reminder to look to Jesus for healing is timely. Thank you.

    Excellent. Never considered the connection between shame and idolatry. So when idols fail us, we feel shame.
    Very interesting.
    Where does Allender say this?

    Yes – it’s one of a series of great observations he makes in ‘The Wounded Heart’.
