What Lies Beneath

One of our stops on our trip to Rwanda was this massive, beautiful lake called Lake Kivu. It was truly a paradise – aqua blue water, islands, palm trees and coves. However, beneath this paradise lies something deadly. So deadly, the lake has been named “Killer Lake”. Massive amounts of methane gas are trapped deep below the lake’s surface. If this methane ever erupted, scientists fear millions will be killed. This seems so scary, but we can be doing the same thing in our very own lives. Proverbs 28:13 says, “Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” If we choose to hide our sins and worries deep down, they don’t disappear; they sit there, weighing us down until they eventually erupt, leading to death. Instead, God asks us to confess our sins. By doing this, we can be free of the burden of sin and instead be filled with God’s gifts of peace, love and joy, and when these erupt from us, life flourishes.
