Uncover your sins in repentance to God, & He will cover them up

Psalm 32:3-5, 8-9 

Lord, I prayed to you again and again, but I did not talk about my sins. So I only became weaker and more miserable. Every day you made life harder for me. I became like a dry land in the hot summertime. Selah But then I decided to confess my sins to the Lord. I stopped hiding my guilt and told You about my sins. And You forgave them all! Selah 

The Lord says, “I will teach you and guide you in the way you should live. I will watch over you and be your guide. Don’t be like a stupid horse or mule that will not come to you unless you put a bit in its mouth and pull it with reins.”
