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.
