    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Sinful/intrusive thoughts

  1. Hi brothers and sisters

    I can't help but to think that I'm not alone in what has been an almost 8 year battle in my spiritual life. I struggle with these very obsessive and almost complusive thoughts as I also have OCD. These thoughts began very abruptly one day and since then have plagued. I mostly deal with these phrases and thoughts of sinful curse words with Jesus' name. I do believe that satan knows my weakness, that being my OCD, and uses it to his advantage. These thoughts cause me awful stress and anxiety as my mind will tell me you're not saved, you've lost your salvation, you can't be forgiven.....all of which my heart knows is a lie! I do believe that I am redeem by the blood of my Savior Jesus Christ but I question why this and why me. Over these years of consistent doubt I've prayed countless prayers of forgiveness and salvation because I'm just so afraid. There are times when I'll be at church, doing devotions or even praying and these words/thoughts will pop in my mind. I feel like I have no control over them but yet feel as if I'm held accountable for them. I know that Jesus knows the true intentions of my heart and He knows how much guilt and shame I carry daily because of them. I just cling to the hope that my faith in Christ IS ENOUGH and His blood is powerful enough to wash away my most deepest and darkest of sins....after all isn't that why he came? My favorite bible verse of all time has to be Romans 8:38:

    "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love."

    I cling to this scripture because it's spelled right out that neither the demons or any power of hell can ever separate us from our Savior!!! Satan may be powerful and the spiritual warfare may be real but Jesus is far more powerful and "we(I) are more than conquerors in Christ" Romans 8:37.

  2. "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:5)

    [for me anyway] seeing that we called unto live by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth God, and that faith cometh by hearing the Word of God; therefore we must needs learn to not think above that which is written, that we may keep away from exaggeration and over-estimation: because hearing is much more than merely listening, it is rather that we submit to and rely upon the Word of God; and if we lack faith, then we must more abundantly hear the Word of God, seeing that faith comes only by hearing God's Word.
    Moreover Christ tells us that if anyone will follow Him, that we must deny (disown) ourselves (our own will), which is for that very purpose that we submit to and rely upon the Word of God only, because will causes us to drift and go astray.
    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
     
  3. Fasting and prayer and reading the bible can help overcome most any issues. I will pray for you
     
  4. I suffered from intrusive thoughts in the past too, although just a month, but, Yahuah is able to deliver us from anything, never rely on your own strength. "Trust in Yahuah with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." Do not listen to your mind, trust in His promises and He will renew you! I will pray for you, may Yah bless you!

  5. Wow I suffer with something similar, road rage wise & when dealing with people that I can't stand. In Jesus name...I pray for our thinking to become positive and in God's way of thinking. Amen!

  6. Do you think maybe those thoughts are not Satan's but your own. Maybe those thoughts have formed because there's some things about what you believe that you need to challenge. Maybe there beliefs that need to change and the more you supress changing them the more those nasty thoughts emerge.

    Maybe.
