Resisting confession

Folks, I need prayer.

I am resisting confession and am falling to temptation. Need heaps of God's grace. Pray that God will gift me with perfect repentance.

Thanks in advance.

Just do it! You will feel so much better...focus on that feeling of pure joy once you know that He forgives and continues to love even when we are not perfect. That is the point of Recon!

With prayers,

LOL! Before I even got to the comments I was thinking of telling you to "just do it" but Tracy beat me too it. Tim, I will pray for you but pray to the Holy Spirit to help you give you the strength to confess all your sins to the best of your ability. My son Joey always says that confession helps him feel "squeaky clean" and it does.

Do NOT be afraid. Do NOT be discouraged. That is what the enemy make you give up.

Dust yourself off, Pick yourself back up and Go to confession. Then, keep trying, even should your fall and fail a thousand times if necessary. Do not give up.

It is in the trying and in the suffering that we are perfected.

Think of His cross and how in the confessional you are kneeling at it.

Think of His blood washing over you, cleansing you.

Remember - there is more joy in heaven over one repentent sinner than 99 who do not need to repent.
