Repentance isn't cowering before God, looking at your sin. It is turning from sin, looking at God.
We serve a God full of grace. He forgives us of sin (Jesus already paid for it) and more than that His grace empowers us to not have to sin anymore.
If you are like me, you know that this is a process. Repentance is a daily thing. He's in this process and will meet you every time (it's really more about Him than the thing anyway).
