Think.

What do you think the turnaround of repentance* would mean for you?

Journal.

If you want a new start in life, what do you need to turn from? To whom would you turn? How would you go about making the radical turnaround of repentance? Write about these things.

Pray.

God, if you are real, make yourself real to me. Awaken in me the possibility that with you I could start over again.

*Repentance is not limited to emotions like contrition, guilt, and remorse. Repentance is more about action— it’s the starting over that happens as a result of those emotions. The thing is, we can feel bad and wish things were different and still not be repentant.
