Unconfessed sin is like an abyss, confessed sin like a bridge

Frederick Buechner once wrote about confession: “To confess your sins to God is not to tell God anything God doesn’t already know. Until you confess them, however, they are like the abyss between you and God. When you confess them, they become the Golden Gate Bridge.”
