My mind keep thinking evil thoughts I cannot control it at all! I just had an emotional breakdown praying to the lord for help because I was looking for help online and I saw the most unforrgivible sin and now my mind wont stop thinking it! I cant control my thoughts I need help. Am I destined for hell?
Hi sweetie. Sometimes it's comforting to know that you aren't alone. I'm writing to let you know I'm a 22 year old female and have the same problems.
I have been battling with this for a long time and am fortunate enough to have some people in my own family who have too. With God, and them, I manage to struggle along.
First of all, I want to stress one fact. God loves you.
"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved." Ephesians 2:4-5
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16
That idiot, satan would love nothing more than to steal something that is so precious to God.
And all people are sinful. So there are only two categories to fall under, it's either "I am sinful and am saved by the grace of Jesus" category or "I'm a good person by my own virtue and don't need anyone".
God is where good comes from. If anyone is truly good, it's only through him and not of ourselves. The devil doesn't want you see the true extent of your sinfulness.
At times, I know it's really hard but learn to tune yourself out. I came across a neat article that also helped me out. This is what it says:
"When you look at your own mind from a “stand back” position, you really see what a crazy mind you have!
All good. Awareness is the first step to change very very true.
Anyway, just what do we do with crazy thoughts, even disturbing thoughts, even EVIL thoughts?
WE IGNORE THEM
WE FIGHT, yes, at FIRST FIGHT. And the fight is not what most people think. THE FIGHT IS FOR YOUR ATTENTION.
The fight is TO HOLD your attention to your chosen focus. At first, the crazy mind is all over you like a rash. But you must understand that this doesn’t continue. As you fight for control over your attention, the crazy mind settles down and the fighting is over.
Then you MASTER your own mind. There is no fight. You say YES if you want to say yes, you say NO if you want to say no.
No swirling crazy thoughts. No belief that “I AM these thoughts.” “I AM EVIL.” What a load of tosh. AND what hell if you DO believe them. Thoughts aren’t true, and they’re not YOU either."
Do not believe these lies. Your heart and mind are the battlegrounds for your soul, and unfortunately this is what the bible says about our hearts:
"The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?" Jeremiah 17:9
One of the hardest things in life I've ever learned was that we are so immersed in sin, that we can't even trust ourselves...
I have such agonizing thoughts and go to sleep crying at times. I've sought some help in the past, but the only true help I've got is from God.
Sometimes I can't ignore them and the audacity of these thoughts disturb me so much that I felt I needed to start speaking outloud. Praise works the best. My pastor says that the best thing you could do is to praise God when you don't feel like it.
Don't be afraid. God knows you so well, he even knows what you are thinking and he would like to help you through it.
If you, need any understanding or comfort email me : (email@example.com).
If it gets unbearably try this: "I plead the blood of Jesus over my mind, body, and soul" and be comforted in the fact that you have access to forgiveness through Jesus's very own blood. Remember, that it comes by your faith.
God will bring us through. Just wait and see.
I see from your profile you are 15 years old. I have been active in youth ministries for 30 years, and have raised 31 foster boys your age in my home during those years. I'm trying to tell you I know a LOT about 15-year-old boys.
Let me talk straight to you. At your age, there are a couple of very serious adult illnesses which can start showing themselves, and causing you to think this way. So, please, find a way to get to a doctor, and tell the doctor exactly what you told us. Please do this. It is unlikely that you have these adult illnesses, but PLEASE have a doctor check you out. If, for some reason, the doctor says you MIGHT have one of the illnesses, it's no big deal. Just take a pill every day, like the kids who take Ritalyn to help control their hyper-activity. It's as simple as that.
The doctor will probably say you're "good to go" and that means you're only dealing with questions that most 15-year-olds have. In that case, get yourself involved in a church youth group, try to eat right, and get plenty of exercise (the more, the better). Ask your questions to a caring adult who you trust, and who you think is qualified to answer those questions.
Let me know how it goes. God's richest blessings to you.
You are NOT destined to hell. God loves you,flaws and all and I even believe He created us to be imperfect so we would be tottaly and completely dependent on Him. Also the bible says you do have control of your thoughts and that you can cast out wrong ones and choose right ones. More specifically it says, "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a SOUND mind," (2 Timothy 1:7 NKJ). Next time you feel a negative thought comming to mind, defend yourself by speaking the truth out loud. It will take time, but eventually your mind will not be a playground of lies or negative thoughts. Of course the battlefield is in the mind, but your destined to win being a child of God so dont give up.
I was at Church the other day, and as long as you are alive you can not commit the 'unforgivable sin'. God is a forgiving person, and I thought I commited the unforgivable sin also. But once your dead theres no turning back, but your obviously alive, so just pray about it, and God knows whats really in your heart. And tell the thoughts, 'by the blood of the lamb, and in Jesus's name, be gone.' And whenever a bad thought comes up do that and think of good and holy things! Hope that helps. (:
It seems that you are very religious. Is that right?
Go to a priest in your church and tell him what is in your mind. Ask him for help. Confess everything. Tell him that you feel bad about it. God will help you then. God will always help you, when you come to his house and ask for help.
Maybe, if there's something bad going on with your mind, you'll also have to see a doctor.
DO NOT hate yourself. Go get help!!!
I am too in the same situation, I feel that I have evil thoughts about God and evil say things that I do not want to say, I cry too and feel so depress, I feel like I can not go on like this. I even felt the Holy Ghost left me. I feel this evil feeling inside me,and I feel like I am going to hell. I am a 26 yr old female, I have sin against God and the Holy Ghost and I am being punished for it. I feel so bad!
It sounds like many of you are just spooking yourselves out. Take a cold shower and a run around the block. Shake yourself out of it. Stop with the freaking out and the frightened repenting and the feverish behavior in general. It's a vicious cycle. God knows exactly where you are. Laugh it off in prayer and grow a little more common sense in your faith.
I=my mind is trying to swear my soul to the devil but please understand I would never you see I have a.d.d. and im depressed even more depressed right now my mind thinks thoughts of murder and all kinds of evil things I would never do this stuff but thinking it is wrong and I cant control it so I had an emotional breakdown I do not know what to do
You have to do all these:
Do this every day and you will be fine
Just keep praying to the Lord. Ask forgiveness for your sins because love all of us and he will forgive you no matter what. Keep the Sabbath days to him and he will help you himself
saved I tried that just now and I accidently said satans powers are good but I did not mean it it was a complete accident I REALLY REALLY DID NOT MEAN TO SAY THAT I HATE MY MIND!!!
Go get some professional help. There are help lines you can call anytime if you need. Dont delay, get help now.
what was the problem, whats your religion? I cant answer this question if I dont know these answers...
What kind of thoughts? Please share. :) It's okay, God forgives. Just keep praying. :DD
I felt so sad I started yelling when I prayed and I feel terribly miserable
