There are so many scriptures about confession…Proverbs 28:13 says “He who conceals his sins does not prosper,
but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” I’m going to be really honest…I’m not a good confessor. I tend to keep things bottled up inside of me, not wanting people to know what I’m going through.
I’m learning that there are certain people that you can confide in–family members and friends–and I’m finding freedom in the confession. That’s not to say that I’m not going to have to pay the consequences for the sins that I’ve committed.
It has been a very long time since I’ve actually experienced the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. I cannot recall the last time I was so secure in who I am, in Whose I am, that God is going to bring to pass the things that He has promised.
I also woke up and, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I wasn’t worried about money. I know, it’s crazy. According to statistics that have been circulating, I am in the top 1% of the world’s earners, yet there are days that I’m afraid of being broke. But today, I woke up and just knew that I have nothing to worry about. That’s not to say that I don’t have to work some things out, but I just know that it’s going to be ok.
So, I am experiencing the Pax Deneen…the peace of Deneen. God is doing something, and I’m resting in the knowledge that He is in control. Novel idea, I know, for a follower of Christ.
