The present weakness

I’ve talked with people who have learned about the power of confession and found it easy to share their past secrets, but have difficulty confessing their present secrets. Confession isn’t just about the past. Rather confession is about the secret that might be an all-out war today. To tell someone about the struggle you’re having requires the humility to say, “I haven’t gotten this under control and need help.” To confess is to say, “I am weak.” It is in this weakness that God is strong.—What’s Your Secret? page 74
