Don’t try to hide when you’ve done wrong…God knows everything!

Good Friday morning to you all:)

How many times do we allow ourselves to do something that we know isn’t “exactly” what we ought to be doing? Do you tend to think that it isn’t that big of a deal, and just go on about your day? When we opt out on confessing our wrongs, this is a form of hiding our sin. Although we may be temporarily hiding it, just know that it’s not being hidden from God.

The book of James exposes unethical practices and teaches right Christian behavior.

James 4:17
17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

We tend to think that doing wrong is the sin, But James tells us that sin is also not doing right. (These two kinds of sin are sometimes called sins of commission and sins of omission.) It is a sin to lie; it can also be a sin to know the truth and not tell it. It is a sin to speak evil of someone; it is also a sin to avoid him when you know he needs your friendship. We should be willing to help as the Holy Spirit guides us. If God has directed you to some act to do, some service to render, or some relationship to restore, do it, and you will experience a renewed and refreshed vitality to your Christian faith.
We are told in 1 John 1:9 that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
True confession also involves a commitment not to continue in sin.
Pray for strength to defeat the temptation the next time it appears.

I did wrong…Here it is…

Let’s be like Jack, and give the wrong to God and quit hiding out, God knows it:)

FRUITFUL OBSERVATION:
Go ahead and confess it and get cleaned up in His sight, so that He can use you today and everyday! Hiding slows us down, just ask Jack:)

    I know it was difficult to give up your business and the interaction you had with your clients/friends. Obviously God had another plan. Would you have ever believed it would be blogging? Now you are able to share your love of God not only with those former clients but with so many more. Love you Kim and love what you’re doing.

    • Oh Glenda! Absolutely it was one of the most difficult situations that I’ve ever had to encounter (giving up my independence), but I have to admit that I have adjusted my attitude and realized that it is HIS independence that we must rest. I thank you so much for the comment and the encouragement. I’m stepping out that this is “maybe” the direction that He is leading. I feel that He gave me almost 20 years working (and encouraging) with women and perhaps now that experience can reach outside of Nailtips:) If you haven’t read my first blog thats titled “The Foundation A Door and A Window, that’s all that remains” please do so.. Love you too Ms. Glenda. Please share with your friends so that we (together) can encourage others. That’s what it’s all about:)
