Lying while confessing to a priest

A few years ago, some friends and I decided that we go to a church and have a confession. I totally agreed because it had been 10 years since I last confessed to a priest and attended a mass. We went to church dressed appropriately and after the mass, we lined up outside the confession room. I told the priest all of my feelings and mistakes. He told me God will forgive me. He asked me if I hear mass often, I told him, not that much, which was a lie because I don’t go to church since grade school. He asked me why, and then I suddenly had to make up an excuse because I didn’t want to tell him that I am really lazy on Sundays. So I just told him I am always out of town on most Sundays because I had to go see my family or sometimes, I just had to work on my part time job even on the weekends. He didn’t ask more and just told me what to pray. When we all finished confessing, we headed out of the church. When we were all talking and laughing like crazy people while heading to the parking outside the church, I slid down the stairs and missed five steps that I landed on my face. My friends rushed to help me up and jokingly said God punished me for lying to a priest. I faked a laugh and got up. That night, I couldn’t sleep. I thought about what happened earlier in the church. Maybe God punished me because I lied to the priest even though I know that no matter what mistake I have done, the priest won’t be judging me and God will always forgive me if I asked for forgiveness sincerely. He will always accept me. He will always be there for me. That night, I prayed and asked for forgiveness. A few moments later, I passed out and woke up feeling like a huge burden was taken out of me.
