Day 61/365

… if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—he won’t let us down; he’ll be true to himself. He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing. (‭‭1 John‬ ‭1:8)

I’ve learned (yes, the hard way), that conviction doesn’t always come at once and at the same time.

Many (many) times in my life, something has happened that’s pulled me up short – a conversation that went down a particular road I wasn’t expecting. A memory, even a smell (aftershave, perfume, fried chicken)!

Or a carefully crafted lie that I’d been hiding behind – sometimes for years!

Any (and all), of these have and did spark a sudden twinge in my spirit that required my immediate response.

Our Father doesn’t want us dragging our stuff around like Jacob Marley in Scrooge… if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—he won’t let us down; he’ll be true to himself. He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing. (‭‭1 John‬ ‭1:8) ❤️
