God wants your list
by Max Lucado
God doesn't just want the mistakes we made – he wants the mistakes we make. Are you drinking too much? Are you cheating at work or at marriage? Mismanagement of your life? Don't pretend nothing is wrong. The first step after stumbling must be towards the cross.
1 John 1: 9 promises: "If we confess our sins to God, you can always trust him to forgive us and take away our sins."
Start with your bad moments. And while you're there, God give your "crazy" moments. There is a story about a man bitten by a dog. When he found out that the dog had rabies, he started a list. The doctor said, "There's no need to make a will – you'll be fine." "Oh, I'm not making a will," he said, "I'm making a list of all the people I want to bite!" God wants your list! He wants you to leave it on the cross.
