GOD PAUSE: Any relationship ---- whether with a spouse or other relative, or even with God ---- becomes damaged and erodes by not being honest. Not being forthright. Hiding things by not telling the whole story. I want you to hear with me today David's cry in Psalm 32:5. He says to God “When I finally saw my own lies, I owned up to my sins before You, and I did not try to hide my evil deeds from You. I said to myself, “I’ll admit all my sins to the Lord,” and You lifted and carried away the guilt of my sin.” Dear Lord, as much as You love me and my friend, you won't tolerate us hiding things from you. So we come clean before You and ask your forgiveness. Free us from the guilt and let us revel in your grace. Amen.
(You’ll be blessed as you share GOD PAUSE with others)
