On Healing, Sin, and Confession

“We are as sick as our deepest secrets.”   – Courage International

“Happy the man whose offense is forgiven, whose sin is remitted. O happy the man to whom the Lord imputes no guilt, in whose spirit is no guile.

I kept it secret and my frame was wasted. I groaned all the day long for night and day your hand was heavy upon me.  Indeed my strength was dried up as by the summer’s heat.

But now I have acknowledged my sins; my guilt I did not hide. I said: ‘I will confess my offense to the Lord.’ And you, Lord, have forgiven the guilt of my sin.”      – Psalm 32
