I confess - I am sorry Psalm 38

Psalm 38 is very vivid. It's painful to read. As some say it is "UP front and Personal!! It tells us what sin looks like and what it does. 

God has a plan for the stinking, festering burden and the distruction of sin. This visible description of sighing, longing, heart throbbing, strength failing, friends deserting. It is all too real. The Psalm says look at this, see the pain that comes from sin. See the trials it brings. This is not what God wants for you. He corrects and teaches. Stay the course of righteousness. With this knowledge "Verse 18: I confess my iniguity; I am sorry for my sin."  has true meaning. As you read through the verses, praise God for his wonderful plan and prayerfully utter Vs. 22, Make haste to help me, O Lord, My Salvation!

I hope you will take a few minutes today and read this Psalm. 

Blessings on your day,

If it were not for the ending prayer the reader would be rendered helpless and hopeless. That is not the God who teaches
