Name it, claim it, and then move on.
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
Psalm 32:5a (NLT)
Unfortunately, we know all too well what a pothole is. If potholes are not repaired, they only get bigger.
Unconfessed sin is that way too: our “pothole of guilt” gets bigger and bigger. It is best to confess our sins to God knowing we are forgiven.
