I love the way this short little statement begins in Psalm 32:5:
“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. “
Finally…after I have tried to figure out every way possible to ignore, perhaps even hide my shortfalls, I confessed. Finally, I stopped trying to hide my guilt. Finally, I confessed. There is nothing more liberating than letting it all out. Light always dispels darkness.
Maybe you have felt the pressure and anxiety that guilt tries to overwhelm you with. You may feel tired and worn out from carrying this load that was never yours to carry in the first place. Let today be the day you have your “finally” moment. It’s so easy and it will bring an amazing amount of freedom. Simply say "Lord, I am sorry for the things I have done that were not part of your plan. I searched for my own path in my strength and I have come to the end of my journey. Finally, I confess to you!"
There is no better way to begin a new week than with the knowledge that you have been forgiven by God. Guilt is gone! This is THE DAY the Lord has made! Rejoice and be glad! Finally!!!
