Regrets, Reality, Restoration
The simple truth is life is full of regrets. Imprinted on our psyches, some resist all attempts at erasure. What do we do when the condemning memory of past offense(s) won't be silenced? Is there a way out beyond our backstory? Regrets, Reality, Restoration shows there is, by sharing the life stories of those who have found resolution and victory over the heartache of their pasts.
Regrets: whose life is not plagued by at least a few of these nagging leftovers from the past? The things we regret doing—or not doing, as the case may be—can wear us down, reshaping our lives and our sense of self in the process.
What’s happened in our lives does not have to dictate the present or future. We can move beyond anguish as Christ won an ultimate victory for us! In Jesus, there is a way out of griefs, sorrows and anxieties.
You will hear heartfelt stories from people who have experienced regret in deep and profound ways. See how, even in these individuals' most tormented moments, it was God's love in Christ Jesus that brought hope to despair and light to crack the darkness.
