The Lord loves and cares for me so much that today He showed me something I have done wrong for decades of my life. He used three separate people recently to deliver His message, though for years He had tried to get my attention through numerous people and situations. Until today, I had resisted, denied, and defended. Today, I received the most wonderful gift when I made the decision to repent. I asked the Lord to forgive me for every single person and animal I have hurt my entire life through what He showed me. And, through my faith in Jesus Christ and because of my act of repentance, He forgave me. Then I went one life-changing step further. I asked the Lord how to act differently in this area. I listened to His answer. He replied by showing me Scriptures and reminding me through the renewing of my mind by His Word and by the power of the Holy Spirit I can learn to walk free from what I had held onto for so very long. I am sorry for those who steer clear of repentance. To me, repentance is one of the least-preached about, most precious gifts the Lord has given His children.

Luk 15:7 “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”
