What emotion do you link to the word ‘confession’ – fear, embarrassment, shame? What about freedom? Here’s Switchfoot for your soundtrack today:
‘In this life I’m stubborn to the core; In this life I’ve been burning after more; We both know what these open arms are for; You’re everything that’s fair; In this life, you’re my only one.’ (Head Over Heels.)
Confession gets truth out into the open – truth about God, about your life. There, truth can be dealt with and won’t get gross like sweaty sports kit in a zipped-up bag. What do you need to get out into the open with God or someone this week?
