I was sitting on my friend’s couch when the horror happened. My fancy dancy phone that goes with me everywhere just died. The battery still had juice in it, so its demise truly perplexed me. I plugged it in to an outlet, but it remained dark and lifeless.
In a panic, I called Mr. Fix It. He assured me that he would come to the rescue. I jumped in my car and raced home where I handed my man the defunct mobile device.
Two hours later, we took two Advil and headed to the closest Provider Store for support from the experts.
In a shrill voice, I explained every single tragic step that had transpired that day. I was quite sure that I would be leaving the store with a new phone since mine was obviously defective.
The nice man with the badge on took my phone and fixed it in about 5 seconds. I am quite sure that my mouth fell open in complete disbelief when he handed me back my fully functioning smart phone.
“Do you know about the reset button?” he asked.
No, I did not. Apparently, if you keep your phone running all the time, it gets “buggy.” To fix the anomalies, you simply need to give your phone a fresh start.
How was I supposed to know?
One thing I do know is that God has provided a perfect “reset function” for my soul. Have you been mis-functioning lately? Confession will clear that right up and put a new zip in your spirit.
When I refused to confess my sin,
my body wasted away,
and I groaned all day long.
Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me.
My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat.
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
Psalms 32:3-5, NLT
