    Jason, my suggestion would be to find a pastor that is willing to sit for an hour with you, and share these thoughts with somebody in person. It will help!

    I know exactly what you're going through. I have been through it myself and I also say out loud that Jesus is Lord and remember that God is always with you and that He loves you with a deep love. Remember the verse that says "if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. God bless you and Jesus is Lord.

    I don't believe that. I have 5000 Facebook friends, mostly Christian and many live in the UK. I am sure I can find somebody who would be willing to sit down with you.

    Jason, after I read your post, I went searching the net for scriptures about suffering that I thought might comfort you. I suffer as well. Not OCD. I have ME and have had 7 major surgeries in 8 years, and after years of praying for healing, I finally let go and looked toward heaven - I thought about all that Christ had done for me and decided to accept that He has chosen to not heal my body now. I have finally found that place of joy and peace within my suffering. I am filled with joy though I am in pain. He is with me all the time, and I am glad to suffer if it will be used as a way to win souls to Christ or comfort others and give them hope.

    I found a website - a young man with OCD who has learned a technique for slowing it down. He still suffers but has been able to keep it under control enough to have a very rich life. I read his page and was deeply touched. I urge you to look at his website. Be proactive - be thinking about taking back your authority - don't let this illness boss you and make your decisions. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! The body may be ill, but YOU are a light on a hill to the Lord of Hosts. One day we will receive new bodies that will never grow old. I just feel a Christian love for you, and I sincerely hope you can take charge of your life and this nasty OCD!

    I don't usually do this, but I feel the Lord's presence and I believe He wants you to know that He has laid specific plans for you. He has his eye on you and He sees you in a way you cannot imagine. You are very precious to him, and he is there with you now. Be brave and pray about how to let go of the exhausting anxiety you feel - I sincerely pray you can find peace that passes understanding and let Jesus take hold with you. God bless you, Jason!




    Here is the website: Taking OCD Captive


    From the website:

    2 Corinthians 12:7-9
    To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for
    my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:7-9


    "When these doubts come we must demolish OCD’s arguments by the knowledge of God. This means bringing truth into the situation. As baptized disciples of Jesus, we are God’s children blessed with every spiritual blessing. Just accept the thoughts as being there, and focus on who God says you are. Remember, with OCD thoughts this is not “trying to push the thoughts out of your head”, they will get bigger because you are still focused on them. Taking them captive is acceptance of the thorn and remembering the knowledge of God. In time this will demolish them!" ----Mike PattersonEngage in the Present (Philippians 3:12-15)


    Matthew 5
    3“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
    5Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
    6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
    7Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
    8Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
    9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
    10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the
    kingdom of heaven.

    Just remember that ocd goes after the things we care about and the fact that this bothers you shows that you have a love for Jesus.

    As long as you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and you trust Him to save you then you are saved. God loves you brother and Jesus is always for you, never against you. God loves you

    I think this is it. Depression can cloud or blot out Truth for a time, or seem to. Hang tight to Christ, friend. Ask Him to chase away the spirits of doubt and sorrow that are hurting you. Try making the sign of the Cross over yourself. Christ will help you.

    Jason, I said I bet I could find somebody willing to sit down with you and you go back to your symptoms. Brother, you need to talk to somebody in person... not from behind a keyboard. You need to hear warmth, or cold... in the voice of another. Tone, love, caring.... in person.
