confession and repentance

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
but he who confesses and forsakes them
will obtain mercy.
Proverbs 28:13

facing the truth
about my wrongs,
no longer self-justifying,
turning to a path
of doing right instead,
this requires courage
and strength.

facing and forsaking 
sometimes requires
more strength and courage
than i think i have.

but there are resources 
outside myself
that are available to me--
God
and his redeeming grace.

So beautiful Tammie!

Such an honest breakdown of how I imagine many of us reading feel also!

it's a decision and a decision again to face the truth, turn from walks, walk in grace, isn't it? x
