“People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.” Proverbs 28:13
Bring It Into Play
Pressure. The pressure to be perfect can lead you to hide your mistakes or struggles.
Leading you to be fake. To act okay. When you are definitely not okay.You want people to believe that life is great. Even when it’s falling apart.
...Why? What are you trying to prove??...
As a follower of Christ, you will stumble. Don’t fall into the trap of feeling like you have to hide it.
Instead own it. And tell others Jesus loves you and forgives you. That He has compassion for you.And He is willing to help.
Put your identity in His hands. Not in your mistakes.
Lord. Give me the courage to admit that I have faults and sin struggles. Not to glorify them. Rather to keep me from hiding them and falling into the trap of acting like I am perfect. When I make a mistake, remind me to bring it to you. That you will help me. That you love me even when I fall. Thanks for being a loving Father. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
