    Hi I'm 17 years old and I have been a Christian since I was 11 years old. When I was much younger any time i sinned I felt terrible about it and would repent right away. But about when I was 15 my uncle and great grandma passed away within a one week span.I was extremely close it both of them and I started down a bad path.I found myself starting to go to the wrong side of the internet and would watch porn and do many sinful things to make myself feel better. At first I felt terrible and afterwards would still repent.But I keep doing it and as I kept doing it I would start to not feel guilty. Then I wouldn't ask for forgiveness as much and pretty soon kinda just shoved God out of my life. This continued for about another year,I was homeschooled the whole time and had a Bible class I still did and I still really loved the Lord I just was in a dark place.After about a year of this when I was 16 it hit me what I was doing. I had been making excuses in my mind that it was fine I was doing these things and when it hit me I realized how bad I was getting. I finally went to God and I truly repented for my sins asked for forgiveness I was on my knees almost in tears I felt awful for all of it and just truly was so disappointed in myself about it. Now I'm 17 and I'm back to having a really good relationship with God and I do slip up sometimes still but when I do slip up I somtisome don't feel very guilty anymore. I do still to an extent but I wish i did more until I asked for forgiveness and repented of my sins. Now I know a reason for it may be that I was in sin for so long and became numb that it may be the reason for it.But I wanted your guys opinion on it and I really appreciate everyone who respondeds to this to try and help me out,God bless all of you and have a wonderful day!

    We all slip up ... and experience what you are experiencing .... He is faithful and quick to forgive .... keep on following the Lamb .... stay in His Word .... be thankful and prayerful .... He is always with us .... always helping us.

    Philippians 1:8

    English Standard Version
    And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

    May the Lord fill you with His spirit. Amen.

    Welcome! I don't think I ever read anything that had no periods at the end of a sentence. So your post is a bit hard to read. Can you edit?
    That being said, God loves you! I await the periods!
    Be blessed and stay healthy !

    BTW, if you are talking into a phone, just say "full stop" and a period appears.
