It's true that you've done all of those things but don't turn away from the Lord instead serve Him with all your heart-1 Samuel 12:20 NIRV.
What does this verse say to me? Well it yells out yes, you've done some things that didn't please me (me being Him) but don't let those things keep you from giving me your praise. Who of us can claim that we've never done, said or thought anything that wasn't of God (Has anyone of you not sinned -John 8:7 NIRV)? Not one of us can and I'm sure of this.
So what if you've made some decisions that you're not exactly proud of. Who hasn't? God said if we ask for forgiveness and seek repentance then He'll no longer remember what we've done (Hebrews 10:17 NIRV). If this is true why then are we still holding onto sins that we committed 10 years back? I dare you to give that one some real thought!
Gave it some thought and now that question's stuck in your head---well good! Here's something else that I want to be stuck in your head and in your life for that matter IT'S IN MY PRAISE (a song entitled by David Mobley and the Psalms of David). Our praise is how we glorify The Almighty, so continue to praise Him!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
