  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    The last weeks, compulsions are stronger because, automatically, they are accompanied with some scary thoughts without my will.

    I remember having a compulsion not to watch a specific dialogue, I think, from a tv episode on youtube. I do not remember how this compulsion was created, but I think, I remember trying to find which video it was, in order, not to click it in the future.

    I do not remember what thoughts without my will popped up or how strong they were and I cant confirm if they were 100% without my will. the thoughts without my will that created this compulsion were about a promise to God not to watch that dialogue.

    I worry if the first compulsion was "must watch that scene" and because I was so bored and frustrated to do the compulsion, maybe, my organism changed the compulsion, in a second, from "must watch" to "must not watch". maybe it was like a voice in my head that sugggested me to make a new promise to God not to do the tiring compulsion and this suggestion relieves me for a second and my organism, makes these thoughts that I cant confirm if they are without my will or are both with and without my will. and they are accompanied with more scary thoughts without my will from my subconscious.

    is this a valid promise? I accidentally watched some seconds from that scene and I worry now.

    I pray for you as well.

    You must guard yourself against these evil thoughts. the only recommendation I would make is to stop watching these u-tube videos and concentrate totally on the Word of God. It certainty helped me when I once had to deal with the horror of seeing my only son in death after as suicide.

    It seems to me that the thing about the obsessives and/or compulsives are those whose volume is turned up more than others. When I say "volume", I mean what we can hear from our flesh/carnal nature/that which is perishing. The flesh is constantly desiring and doing what is contrary to the spiritual things of Yah (The Creator)...including breaking promises, blaspheming, worrying, etc...

    "14We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do."

    We all deal with this, it's just that some people's volumes are more turned up than others'.

    Abba Yah please Breathe a Fresh Breath into our lives and give us ears to hear Your Voice, and raise us up in Yahshua ha Mashiach. Amen.

    Also consider this verse:

    Philippians 4:7
    and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and MINDS through Christ Jesus.

    to me, I have found it mean that if we trust Christ enough to guard our minds, He will do so.

    For what it can help you, bear in mind that this life is not about you. God is using you, for HIS own sake. Ride that wave and try to enjoy it, from this viewpoint --that your life is God's work, for God to do as he pleases for his eternal purposes; you cannot impress him with the validity of your performance.

    Could you please define what you mean by your "organism?" At present, my only thought is that you feel something symbiotic is living inside of you. But can that really be the case? Let me know. Thanks.
