It seems my drain's been hoarding hair
Since when I wasn't gray.
Yes, year by year hair gathered there--
Though not a hair a day.
My sin can be like cast-off hair
And clog my soul's bright way
Unless confessing all in prayer
It's washed away each day.
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 ESV)
Forgiveness comes through Jesus Christ, whom we trust. The question isn't whether we've remembered to confess every sin. It's whether we're agreeing with God about our sins--turning from sin, acknowledging that we've been guilty and that Jesus gives forgiveness. Don't trust in how well you've confessed sin. Trust in Jesus Christ.
