No one wishes to be overwhelmed by their guilt and God does not desire for us to be burdened by our sins. He wants us to be set free! But we have to be courageous in our effort to face our sin and our guilt with God.
Psalm 51:1-2 Voice
Look on me with a heart of mercy, O God, according to Your generous love. According to Your great compassion, wipe out every consequence of my shameful crimes.  Thoroughly wash me, inside and out, of all my crooked deeds. Cleanse me from my sins.
