There was a time in my life that I realized that I was lost and was going to hell if I died in that condition. I became sorry for all the sins I had ever committed against God and sought repentance of which I finally received after some time. Actually I spent three years going to church, praying, crying a many of a tear, before I finally felt the hand of the Lord on me and a "feeling of relief" from the burden of my sins. I felt God had heard my cries and lifted me from the marr of the clay, unto a lively Hope in Jesus Christ, raised to walk a newness of life, "born again". I have been on this road for many years now, and have never found or desired to turn back. I am on my way to Heaven and Jesus is my personal Saviour, My Lord, My All in All. When you were seeking repentance, were you "sorrow" that you had sinned against God? 2Cr 7:10For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
