A Good Confession

Foster point out that a good confession begins with sorrow but ends with joy.  What a blessing it is to know that your sins are forgiven.  To move from devastation to exhilaration in a matter of moments is grace indeed.

Seldom do I seem to have that depth of despair or height of release.  I often stay in the middle where the sadness is rather mellow and the joy is far too sober.  I tend to see my sin as "not that bad" and my forgivenss as "not that big of a deal."  I am caught in the lukewarmness of complacency.

Father, show me the terror of my sin and the blinding amazement of my forgiveness.
