This psalm describes the inner pain and weight of sin. God forgives quickly, but David continues to suffer from the consequences of his actions. To be truly free is to accept the forgiveness Jesus offers us, and to then do the work to learn from our mistakes, repair broken relationships and to forgive ourself and others. When you bring all these complicated emotions to Jesus, he will be faithful to listen and to guide you through the painful side-effects of sin. His love will lead you to and through repentance.
I trust in you , O Lord, and you, O Lord my God, will answer me. Psalm 38:15
