God does not intend for us to live our lives in spiritual hospital gowns. God’s intention is that we turn in our hospital gowns and be clothed instead in the finely tailored garments of God’s righteousness. So, go ahead, confess your mistakes and missteps. Tell God your all faults and your failures. Name your defects and deficiencies. Lift up in prayer all your blemishes and imperfections. God is ready and willing to apply God’s grace to your wounds, and to clothe you in God’s glory.
- Psalm 51:1-17
