Don’t Dwell On Sin!
By Tom D Blakely
We must move on from former days
Not dwell upon the past.
Why play the devil’s tiresome game
With sin long since confessed?
If we still harbour secret sin
We do ourselves great harm.
But when we take it to the Lord
We know we are forgiven!
At times we may not feel forgiven
Such doubts are not from God.
If we trust feelings more than Him
We disobey His word!
Confess each sin just once in prayer
In genuine remorse,
And know that God is faithful to
Forgive when we confess!
‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’
[1 John 1:9]
