Are there areas in your life that are not as full as you would like? Are there people you have a hard time living with, working with, and getting along with? Do you find as much satisfaction in your work as you want? Believe it or not, the Sacrament of confession is the most powerful means God has given to the Church to get you back on track, up to speed and in control of your life.
Making a good confession is all about looking within to find the answers that are bothering you. It’s not about the other guy… the person you can’t change…. but all about you and the tremendous way that God can change everything in your life for the better when you say “YES” to Him.
This book is not a super guru book. It’s not a one stop shop for all your answers dealing with God and His plan for your life – but I can promise you that it will start you on the road that will change your life. It will open the door to giving you new answers, new insights and new vision for your future.
Going to confession takes the “lead” out of your life, removes the blocks and obstacles that are holding you back from a joyous life and gives you the graces and power to take positive, spiritual steps forward. Confession is more than a free counseling session – it’s a time to unload the bad certainly, but it is also a time to receive good things as well. God’s grace flows in when we humbly confess all the bad things we have done, the wrong steps we have taken and the negative and hurtful words we have spoken . We then receive the full forgiveness that comes only from God through the hands of the priest as he absolves us from all our sins. “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
The subtitle for this book is from the words of Jesus in the New Testament, “I came that you might have life and have it to the full.”
The sacrament of reconciliation is not about making you feel bad by recalling your weaknesses and failures. It is about creating a sincere and honest relationship with God and others so that you are happy.
Going to confession is about opening the doorway of your heart to let God fully inside.
What’s holding you back? What’s causing you anxiety, fear, or even sleeplessness? What tensions are you living with that are showing up as headaches, backaches, grumpiness, depression, anger, fear, restlessness, compulsiveness and sickness?
The answer will surprise you.It’s something that our Lord Jesus Christ freely came to release you from over 2000 years ago. It’s called, GETTING THE SIN OUT AND LETTING THE JOY IN.
Going to confession is all about experiencing the fullness of joy, peace, and happiness that comes only when you give God freedom in your life to do His best for you. This best is often blocked by sin, sin that Jesus Christ came to remove. In the sacrament of reconciliation, God gives you the perfect means of removing the roadblocks and obstacles that prevent you from being truly human and truly alive.
