Facing Our Failures

Today's Love Dare challenge required me to ask God to show me three problems or failings I have and then listen to Him without judgment.  It didn't take long for Him to point out to me my temper, depressive tendencies, and really more than three things.  We are supposed to confess our sins to God, but as Christians we should also know that He can tell what they are before we do them.  Expressing this to Him is more about recognizing it in ourselves.  It's also different when we ask God to specifically make a list of our problems and listen to what comes into our hearts.

I am very, very grateful that announcing my sins isn't the end of the story.  Though God is holy and righteous, He is also forgiving and has designed a way to have those sins removed.  Christ's sacrifice means that even if we are aware of our sins, we don't have to live with them.
