“Blessed is the one
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered…
the LORD’s unfailing love
surrounds the one who trusts in him.” Psalm 32:1a,10b
Hiding your sin away from God is useless, for you are only lying to yourself when you claim to be free of guilt. This type of lying will only rot your brain to the core. Turn towards the caring and open hands of God. No matter how broken down you might be, turning your sins and transgression over towards God will not only clear your guilty conscience. It will save your soul. A mind free of the weight of sin is a mind more readily able to love.
God, help us to turn toward your caring and open hands, Amen.
Patrick Golden, St. Paul’s Youth
