"Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight! Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty! When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the LORD.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.” Psalms 32:1-5 NLT
There is an incredible joy experienced through forgiveness. Guilt carries a heaviness and burden that literally overwhelms us. Are you carrying a weight of guilt? Maybe today will be the day you unload that weight. “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” 1 John 1:9 NLT
This is really the only way to come clean.
Joy is waiting just on the other side of forgiveness.
