Deep Repentance... Confronting Attitudes, Motives, and Thoughts
Repentance is where the message of Christ and His church begins.
Repentance is how we begin the process of self examination, self correction, and self awareness. Repentance is the process whereby we change the direction of our life towards life rather than death. Repentance has real psychological and spiritual benefits. Repentance has an ongoing role in the life of every believer!

Repentance begins our spiritual journey. In repentance we cry out to God for forgiveness. We accept Jesus Christ as our savior. We surrender ourselves completely to God: and make a conscious decision to obey:
1) we commit to a change in our behavior and obedience We surrender our self to his will and do what He instructs us to do
2) we commit our self to a complete rewiring of our mind and spirit. We trust God to take control of our life, to use instruction, together with trials,
suffering, and other life experience to learn about our self... often to learn the awful truth about our self... and work together with Him to change it.
Neither of these commitments is easy or pleasant.
We may be tempted to take back control of our life… stop trusting in God so much… stop surrendering when we think God is asking too much of us.
But when we put trust and surrender together with confidence and Faith in God’s ability to deliver we can experience a combination of peace and joy.
