This is a great post, and one that spoke to me. Maybe it will speak to you, too.
“Because of your wrath, there is no health in my body; my bones have no soundness because of my sin.”
My sin is like a wound. When left unattended, it becomes more painful, spreads, and deepens. The damage becomes more difficult to repair. But when I come to You right away, Lord, and confess my sin, the healing begins immediately. “Freedom from sin” is no longer just a phrase or bit of head knowledge. It is a real happening in my life. I actually have the sensation of a burden removed from my spirit.
Hear my prayers, Lord. Listen to my cries of repentance. Restore the strength of my flesh, bones, and soul.
