God knows we can't keep promises, and we don't need to promise anything. can you give me an example?
I promised that I would do this chore next time
@drStrange.One.2678 yea see we don't need to make promises and God is loving and knows we are imperfect and you didn't even make a promise it was a thought. I get alot of thoughts that I feel like agreed for something to happen and i ruminate worrying if I actually do agree but it was just a thought.
with erp I suggest try to not do the chore purposely, it won't offend God becuase he wants you to get better. Do the chore when you want not out of fear that's what a loving God wants.
But what happens if this is not ocd and me just randomly messing around. I KNEW what I was doing. And the worse thing is that I given up praying bc i didn’t like it from ocd
@drStrange.One.2678 well that is ocd latching onto uncertainty the thing is anyone can have ocd and ocd is just obsessing. I feel like I knew what I was doing when I "agree" to something but it was just a thought and you don't have control over your thoughts and even if you do think it purposely God understands that you are imperfect and are not going to keep promises. Try not giving in, God loves you and doesn't want you to do things out of fear. I struggle with praying still because of my ocd it's alright god understands so much and it there to help.
@pruni I didn’t know that was the ocd. I feel like I was it was the normal me, thinking. Thank you for helping for realize!
@drStrange.One.2678 I never knew what i was thinking was ocd either, good luck just remeber God is loving and wants you to be free from the fear that comes with ocd.
