Just recently I felt impressed to confess something that happened many years ago. It was rough and hard to hear on both sides, but this needed to be out in the open to start the healing process for everyone. I don’t know about anyone else but it is extremely difficult to hold things inside that will potentially put a damper on a walk with God. This particular sin had been eating away at me for many years because it was so shameful and devastating that I wouldn’t be able to find forgiveness. After telling my support group, they prayed for me and helped me through this situation making it easier to deal with. It’s like a mountain being lifted off your shoulders. If you have something to get off your chest I pray that you do so as soon as possible. Find that special person in your life that will not judge you and share the hindrance with making your walk with God even closer. Make sure that you pray, asking the Holy Spirit to give you the strength to confess your sin breaking out of your burdens.
