Psalm 32. David is known as hero of the faith, but this hero did some pretty evil things. Much like many of us, David didn’t want anyone including God to know about his failures. So what did he do?

We too have sin in our hearts so how can we be free from the guilt and pain of sin? David shows us in this Psalm.
