Psalms 41:4 I said, “Lord, show me your favor. Heal me. I have sinned against you.”
Pouring our heart out to God opens up the way to forgiveness. Forgiveness opens up the way to change.
Personal experience of God’s pardon in my life helped me to seriously consider the fact I was now on the road to change. Up to that point, it was all still a bit of a pipe dream. I had learned about the process of recovery through my journey without really considering the question of what next?
Confession to God for me was the start of His involvement in my life. I realized through communication with Him I had a chance to live a productive and practical life. It was the beginning of my realization that I had hope.
