How happy and fulfilled are those
Whose rebellion has been forgiven,
Those whose sins are covered by blood!
… How blessed and relieved are those
Who have confessed their corruption  to God!
For He wipes their slate clean
And removes hypocrisy from their hearts.
Before I confessed my sins, I kept it all inside,
My dishonesty devastated my inner life,
Filling my days with frustration,
Irrepressible anguish, and misery.
The pain never let up, for Your hand of conviction
Was heavy on my heart.
My strength was sapped,
My inner life dried up
Like in a summer drought in my soul.
Pause in His Presence
Then I finally recounted all my sins to You,
Refusing to hide them any longer.
So I said, “My life-giving God,
I’ll openly acknowledge to You my evil actions.”
And You forgave me!
All at once the guilt of my sins were washed away,
All my pain disappeared!
Pause in His Presence
This is what I’ve learned through it all:
Every believer should confess their sins to God;
Do it every time God has uncovered you,
In the time of your exposing.
If you do this, when sudden storms of life overwhelm,
You’ll be kept safe.
Lord, You are my Secret Hiding Place,
Protecting me from these troubles,
Surrounding me with songs of gladness!
Your joyous shouts of rescue release my breakthrough.

Psalm 32:1-7
The Passion Translation


Until next time….
