Inevitable Effects of Unresolved
Sin in our life....
When I was in early recovery from the grips of alcohol in my life, God showed me that there are two kinds of sin that we each have to deal with in our life. One is the obvious and most talked about and that is the sins that we commit. As Christians we are taught that we need to confess our sins and that God has forgiven our sins because of what Jesus did on the cross. Confession is good for the soul but Jesus actually paid the price for all our sins when He paid the price at Calvary.
The second kind of sin however, is not talked about as much and in many families it is keep as family secrets. I'm talking about the sins that are committed against us. "When we don't resolve the sin we've done or that has been done to us, we enter a new land of coping, covering, plotting and reacting. We view life through a self-protective grid which produces any number of offspring of the inevitable effect of shame including, blame, control, insecurity, arrogance, inadequacy, denial, withdrawal, avoidance, isolation and anger. None of these
just happen to appear in our hearts...They are poisonous weeds that can only be pulled by God. Until we let Him, these weeds will shape how we see our lives." (The Cure)
Sins committed against us start with our parents and early childhood. We learn to stuff and hide the pain they cause as we try to cope with the struggles of life. We are taught to "grow up" or just "forget about it". So we become good
and all the while they fester deep in our inner man until one day we wake up and find ourselves stuck in the quagmire of depression and anxiety.
