The first three choices are about getting my heart right. This choice is about taking action. I openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. Are there people out there youd never want to bump into again??? Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Come now, let us settle the matter, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18 Guilt destroys our confidence, damages our relationships, and keeps us stuck in the past. Its like looking in the rearview mirroryou do it too long and you start to turn the wheel or get into an accident. Keep your eyes focused on what is in front of you and not on your past.

Romans 8:1-2 And the corny says is: Revealing your feelings is the beginning of healing. Romans 5:16: Again, the gift of God is not like the result of one mans sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification.
