People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.  Blessed are those who fear to do wrong, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble. Proverbs 28:13-14

Then I let it all out; I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God.” Suddenly the pressure was gone—my guilt dissolved, my sin disappeared. Psalm 32:5 (MSG)

Our series is about the "Tongue" and this week we are looking at the roll of "Delightful" words (Mellifluous/honey words) in our lives. Yesterday, we focused on the idea that "Delightful" words are not just those which validate and support good (safe) behavior (Yes) but include those that challenge and confront bad (harmful) behavior (No). Perhaps a good way to describe today's focus is this: being open and honest about anything "bad" in our lives that doesn't fit in with the "good" God desires for us and then speaking the corresponding "Delightful" words, "I'm sorry, forgive me" (to God, to others, or to both).

These "Delightful" words come from us and while they are spoken to God and others, we hear them for ourselves as "Delightful" words that impact us to the core of our being. It begins with looking within and really seeing what's there that needs to be dealt with, getting it out in the open, and then letting God apply his love, grace, and forgiveness to it. But then often it extends to other people who have been recipients of the "bad" we are dealing with. Read again our verses above from Proverbs and Psalms, let them sink in, and become convinced that when you genuinely speak the restorative and healing words, "I'm sorry, forgive me," they are "Delightful" to God, others, and yourself. How freeing it is all the way around (God, others, you) when sin is acknowledged, confessed, and forgiven.

Lord, deliver me from the trap of hiding the "bad" in my life. Help me become absolutely convinced of the necessity of sin in my life being acknowledged, confessed, and forgiven. Lord, I am here before you, seeking to be open and honest with you about anything "bad" in my life that doesn't fit in with the "good" you desire for me. Help me to acknowledge and confess it all to you and to believe you will apply your love, grace, and forgiveness to everything. Lord, "I'm sorry, forgive me." Help me, likewise, to go to anyone in my life that needs to hear these "Delightful" words from me as well. Amen!
