Even though people are ashamed of their sins, gospel singer Kierra Sheard says believers are called to confess their struggles one to another.
In a blog post titled “I Won’t Stop Fighting,” the 28-year-old gospel singer shared James 5:16 which states: “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
She then expressed the importance of dealing with sin head on and finding help in others to do so.
“Whatever it is that you’re fighting, realize that it’s there. Don’t deny it. Deal with it,” Sheard wrote earlier this week. “Don’t embrace the issue, but embrace the journey of realizing the truth to change it. If it’s a lying tongue, a past abortion, homosexuality, fornication, the wrong relationship, weight loss, talking to a loved one that may have neglected you, lacking self discipline, fears of success, fears of failure, etc. There are so many things that keep us from moving forward. Deal with it.”
The singer and daughter of Grammy Award-winning Karen Clark Sheard and Bishop J. Drew Sheard, said friends can help people heal during troubling times.
