Good evening everyone,
I come to you again seeking your help on some troubles in my life. I have been reading my Bible and saying my prayers and praying for the forgiveness of my sins everyday (I may have skipped a day or two here and there with reading my Bible, but I have been reading quite alot.)
Ive had quite a bit of anxiety for quite a few years. Then, I have been having intrusive thoughts for quite a while (a few years) whether it stems from my developing as an adolescent or something else, they trouble me, and when they popped into my mind I started ignoring them and continued what I was doing, and they seem to be less frequent since I started just paying no mind to them . from what Ive read about them, these thoughts aren’t that uncommon among most people. They popped into my mind at random times, I could be reading the Bible and have a thought that would be something along the lines of “What if God isn’t real?” I don’t believe them, as I said, and carry on as per normal. Then the worrying sank in. What if God considers these thoughts sin? Does he understand that I can’t control them? Are these considered blasphemy? Isn’t blasphemy an eternal sin?
I’m sorry for the questions, again. I probably sound like a crazy person. I just worry a lot. I appreciate your help and guidance.
Thank you and God bless you!
