Your soul was not made to ingest sin. This is where grace comes in. God’s grace means we don’t have to run and hide anymore — you’re safe to confess, invite God in, and seek forgiveness.

When I kept things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me. I moaned all day long. Day and night you punished me. My strength was gone as in the summer heat. Then I confessed my sins to you and didn’t hide my guilt. I said, “I will confess my sins to the Lord,” and you forgave my guilt. [Psalm 32:3-5]
