  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.

Thought about denying Christ that I did not mean

    So this morning I was laying in bed and had a thought about denying Christ. I did not mean it, it was more like testing God, but I immediately had this bad feeling in my gut after thinking the thought and repented. I don't even remember the full thought anymore.

    Is it over for me? Is this kind of thought something that can be forgiven or is it the unforgivable sin?

    I am using a medicine called abilify which makes you engage in risky behaviour, I think part of it was due to that.

    Now I feel really bad and have just been repeating "I accept Christ" over and over again, and praying. I feel really numb. I want to cry but I cannot. I hope there is still mercy for me! Need your prayers.

    It's totally forgivable. You are forgiven already.

    Well Peter did deny Christ thrice infront of men and he was forgiven ... so I guess I am forgiven.

    You are fine. Peter denied Christ three times. You'd think that would be final. Nope. Lord Jesus forgave him and confirmed Peter as an apostle.

    A sin about being tempted to deny Christ? Hold on now. It's not even a sin to be tempted this way or to have this wrong thought to come into your mind. To be tempted isn't a sin. If so then Jesus sinned as well for he was tempted too!

    Matthew 4:1-4 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

    What matters is if you actually did it...turn away from Christ. And even if they did God has mercy for the backslider as you can read about the prodigal son in Luke 15.

    And if you do sin you don't have to keep saying, "I accept Christ, I accept Christ" over and over again. You're his child if you've accepted him before. You don't go from being his son, not being his son, being his son not being so ....YOU ARE HIS SON. Now if your relationship with him needs strengthened well do what it takes to do that but you don't need to receive him again and again and again.

    I cried upon my weary
    Engulfed in fear
    Toe tap to bottle cap
    I sit with You near

    You caught my every tear
    My prayer You heard
    You comforted my care
    You spoke Your word

    Listen close to His Kind tongue
    Jesus leads us onward ho
    Takes us by His hand
    Watches as we grow

    The thing is I think I thought that thought, without meaning it. Like thinking "I want to eat potatoes" even though I do not want to eat potatoes.

    Today I was in prayer and felt the Holy Spirit in me. His presence to me is like this gentle energy followed usually by a feeling of joy and tears of joy. It was similar to the feeling I got when I first prayed in tongues last year and was filled with the Holy Spirit, except lower in intensity. I think I am forgiven!
