“Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions” (Psalms 51:1).
Sin has such a devastating impact–the loss of joy; the guilt, anguish, and shame; the sense of failure. While some choose to wallow in the misery, thinking there is no escape, it is not necessary to remain a slave to sin. We are hiding nothing from God. He knows what he’s dealing with. He longs to forgive, and he wants only for us to ask.
