When we mess up we fess up

Updated on March 3, 2013

It is the only way

We all mess up in life don’t we? Welcome to life. When we confess our sins before God they are forgiven. We all have things that are generically inherited that we know is wrong. Yet, they have too strong a grip on us. That is why it is important to lay them at the feet of Jesus. Not only will He forgive us but when we place these terrible things at His feet, He will heal us.

I am an alcoholic that was inherited by family genes. For years I tried quitting only to fail. One day while hanging my head in the toilet puking I called out to Jesus “Jesus save me or I am going to die. This is too strong for me to handle.” In that instant I stopped drinking and have not touched a drop since. Since then Jesus has molded me to serve Him.

Do not allow your sin to hang over your head like the Sword of Damocles, give it to Jesus.

But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. Psalm 130:4 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ropheka (Jesus our healer) for the incredible blessing of healing me from that destructive force in my life. Thank you for giving me a purpose in live in serving You. I give thanks in Your magnificent balming name. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.

      Good Morning Teacherjoe! Reading this I am reminded of the power of personal testimonies. I still remember your advise on being more personal in my hubs and keep it in the back of my mind! Hopefully I am learning to let my personality show through a little more. Thank you for sharing!

      Good morning lovely little sisters.

      Thank you for your cherished praise MsDora. It is a victory but we can never let our guard down. The sneaky tempter will always be lurking about waiting for a weak moment.

      Confession many times brings us closer to Jesus Faith Reaper. Refusal takes us away from Christ. Glad you like the title.

      May your humble hearts be as pure as a mountain stream.

      Thank you for this beautiful share here. I loved the title, and so true. We all mess up, and so then it is time to fess up no doubt about it, and then be set free to be who we are meant to be.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Yes it is by His strength that many destructive habits in my life have been conquered.

      Good morning Icenefield.

      Thank you. Why not try adding the names in your prayers and see how meaning ful they become.

      I really enjoy reading and learning the different names used for God when you write your devotions. I praise His balming name for healing you and using you.

      Amen. It is not by our strength, but by His strength working in us that we become overcomers; no longer slaves to sin.
