Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
It is so hard to share the secrets of our hearts with anyone. We want to keep our secret failings, embarrassments, and sins hidden. We fear that others would reject us and we would shame ourselves if anyone knew the secret sludge in our hearts.
But hidden sin is only hidden from us. It is not hidden from our Father.
Hidden sin festers in our hearts and drives a wedge between us and the God who would forgive us and empower us to triumph over it. If only we would pour out our hearts to him knowing that he longs to be our refuge.
Loving Father, You alone are my refuge and strength. Strengthen me by the power of your Holy Spirit and help me to pour out my deepest thoughts to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
