“Everything had to be in order for you, everything had to make sense. I hope you've learned that some things don't make sense, no matter how hard you try to make sense of them.”
Angela Benson, The Amen Sisters

“Shame is a hold that sin uses on you. As long as you're ashamed of the sin, it has a hold on you. When you can name it and walk away from it, you're walking in the power of God. That's what the Lord wants from His people. Sin and shame have no place in the life of a man or woman of God.”

“The key to following God was to stay on the road and off the shoulders.”
Angela Benson, Delilah's Daughters
