"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness" 1 John 1:9 NIV
Bring It Into Play
Life can get really heavy. I want to share something that works for me.
I call it a confession cleanse. Basically, I pray and ask for forgiveness for all the junk that I did during the week.
Moments where I snapped. Gossiped. Let a swear word slip. Acted like a jerk. Broke the law. Thought not so nice things.
All that little stuff that can seem like no big deal. Yet can pile up.
I feel so much lighter. After all the confession. Asking God to scrub my heart clean. And for help to do better.
Try it for yourself. See what you think.
Hey God. The word confession can make me feel like I am a criminal. I am not sure why it bothers me so much. Let me see confession the way you do. Show me the benefits of getting my sin out of my mind and off my back. Allow me to see areas where I need confession. Then give me the humility to ask for help and forgiveness. Then let me trust that you will love me even thought you see my sin. Thanks for forgiving me and helping me be the best version of myself. I love you. In Jesus' Amazing Name I Pray, Amen.
