Lenten Guest Post – Guilt

Isaiah 53:5

It’s amazing how often you can listen to a verse, and yet completely miss the point. I have a problem with OCD which makes me feel incredibly guilty for things I’ve done in the past. Whether what I worry about was sin or not, the point is that if we have repented, Jesus has taken the pain of our sin.

    I worry obsessivley. That maybe my friends aren’t talking to me because i’ve done something bad to them. I worry obsessively because I stole a packet of cigarettes when I was 17, and can’t forgive myself, (they were friens of my parents). But I would never ever do it now. The guilty acts take their turn. I worry about one bad thing one day and the next another bad deed seems to take presisdence. I can’t win, there’s always something. I hate it x
