    Default New here and been suffering mentally, I need God :(

    Hi guys, I feel the need to let out what has been holding me down, blocking me, and even interfering with me physically...i can't stand having too many bad and negative thoughts, it's consuming, today it had a meltdown and suicide got into my head, but then I prayed to the Lord to give me strength and to not fail him and he listened and helped me... what i cant stand no more is thinking like this, am I a bad person, am I a crazy person, am I a good person? All I can tell ya'll sincerely is that my heart says otherwise because i know those bad and negative thoughts aren't really me

    I am sorry you had to go through that, the enemy tends to use tactics like that a lot especially if he knows God is goiing to use you in a big way. Such thoughts may come and go but his love never will and regardless of the kind of thoughts that may try to make you see yourself a certain way remember always what father sees when he sees you- a rare and beloeved child whom he envelopes in his light and boasts to angels of.

    This is who you are not those thoughts that are being placed in your mind
    My life's testimony seems to have helped many people so I am going to put it here http://christianchat.com/testimonies...-new-post.html

    When the hearts of God and a child of his make that special intimate connection a wondrous power is born and a flame ignites that can never be put out

    Jesus knew more than anyone of us-Love hurts

    The strongest among you may not wear a crown

    Sounds to me like you're going through some heavy spiritual warfare, which happens quite often to Christians who are going to be used in mighty ways for the Lord, so satan will do everything he can to prevent that from happening. And like Blain said, these feelings and thoughts you're having will come and go, they won't last forever. What does last forever is God's eternal love for you. NOTHING you say, think, or do will ever separate you from His love. Because you are his beloved child. And satan cannot take away your identity in Jesus. I'm saying a prayer for you right now that God will replace your thoughts with truths of His Word and peace to fill your mind. Read and meditate on these Scriptures: Ephesians 6:10-17, John 14:27, Philippians 4:6-8, 2 Corinthians 10:5.

    When we are trying to do the Lord's will, there is no need for negative thoughts. You should ignore them. That is faith: The Lord commands us to trust him. Do the Lord's will, ignore the bad thoughts, and enjoy your life.

    You start in the right place: seeking God. But one thing too, and I speak from experience because I've had them too, suicidal thoughts are very serious. I don't mean "you are in trouble because you have them" no I mean it's not something to try and simply push away or be flippant about. Like yes you should not entertain them but you should go to a psychiatrist if you can or haven't already. I had to take medication, still have to take medication. And that's ok. God knows my heart, knows every negative and crazy thought I have and knows I don't truly want to do or even think those.

    I have OCD and ADD, so that means random negative thoughts that circle around relentlessly. At least that was before my meds. I'm not perfect, and meds can't "cure" you alone. With family, and especially faith in the Lord, I'm alive and well. And I pray the same for you.

    No, you are not bad or crazy. You are a precious creation of God. He created you and
    loves you more than you can ever imagine.
    I am so happy to read that you cried out to God, because He has promised many times
    in His word that when we cry, He hears, listens and answers.
    (Isaiah 58:9 – Then you shall call and the Lord will answer. You shall cry, and
    He will say, “Here I am.”)
    Keeping your mind and thoughts on the Heavenly Father and His word (especially the Psalms)
    will replace the negative thoughts.
    I am praying for you, that God will bring you peace and comfort you and help you see
    how precious you are in His sight.

    I have prayed for God to deliver you from the bad negative thoughts that are dragging you down and replace them with good positive thoughts. You're not bad or crazy at all and what you have described is quite common. Hopefully, you will find comfort, support and understanding from the members of this site. Glad to you have join us.

    Welcome,this a great site to ask questions and get answers,and it's true many times the devil projects thoughts to us or amplifies an old thought or memory to trouble us so we can't work easily for God but it also tells you that God has great use for you for if the devil doesn't try to trouble you then he already has you,so follow who you really are, not thoughts that come and go,for Jesus tells in the bible"all who endureth for Jesus' name sake til the end shall see heaven" so try to think of it as just a test that you can pass quickly,because as long you stay faithful to God and do works for him then the devil cannot so easily trouble you because you'll soon focus on what great blessings are ahead instead of what the devil tries to bombard you with from the past or present,just keep moving forward alongside God and strive to do right,don't let mere thoughts sway you,and if this sort of thing happens again,try listening to gospel music to clear your thoughts or read the bible to gain more knowledge for if there is one thing the devil can't stand it's TRUTH for gospel songs and the bible can both help to refresh your thoughts to what you want them to be,because both can calm the mind and rejuvenate the spirit when you are stressed or feeling down,once again welcome and I hope you'll like it here!

    okay maybe you should call your doctor this is not normal in Gods eyes Satans eyes or any eyes. You sound like you have major anxiety among other things. Yes life can get very hectic and it seems like it is spinning out of control. I have said this several times in many other posts. IF you are in danger call suicide hotline first and fore most you don't even have to give them a real name. Second if things feeling like they are spinning out of control they are probably are life is very crazy. I suggest that you find coping skills to calm you down when you feel like things are going crazy. I listen to classical music it is actually very calming or i listen to a feed of a thunderstorm. Watch videos on how find good coping skills..


    Also please get medical advice on this>> you may need medication for a while or forever but either way this is not spiritual or even non spiritual. I will pray that you seek guidance from a medical professional and that you learn some coping skills..

    Accept the bad intrusive thoughts. Allow them to be there and leave when they want to. Take the sudical thoughts very seriously. Talk to a doctor and even the Suicide hotline number or 911 if you think you might carry out the plans and especially if you have made plans to kill yourself. Don't let negative thoughts get you down. They are not a reflection of who you are as a person. You don't need to ask God to forgive you for the thoughts that pop into your mind. Reflect on how much the Lord loves and cares about you. Jesus died for your sins and mine. Remember the hymn "And Can It Be?".

    I want to begin in Philippines 4. v6 says "Be anxious about nothing." "Pray, Petition, and Thank God." also "Let god know your requests."

    There is a peace that God will give you that is very unnatural. Just take 3 deep breaths and clear your mind. Let go of all your anxieties and tell God (yes boldly Tell God that he promised to take you in his arms and protect you from this anxiety and depression). Whenever you begin feeling depressed pray to God and claim God's promise for you.

    So sorry for your bad experience Leksi321, I think everyone goes through highs and lows in their life. Just ask Jesus to give you strength by studying His Words and His promises. Believe is God's promises and He will give you strength and free you from your bad thoughts....

    "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." (John 8:36)

    Only Jesus can change our lives as we have faith in His Word. The Good news is that He promises to do this for all of us who come to Him and rely on Him! Don't be deceived into thinking thoughts of suicide. If you act on this will be lost forever.

    Jesus says........

    "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matt 11:28-30)

    May God bless you as you learn of Him....

    "Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." (Isa 55:6-7)

    "I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me." (Pro 8:17)

    "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." (
    Jer 29:13)

    God bless you Leksi321

    Hi honey!! You have gotten some good information here, I know it will be a help to you, and many offers to talk also, take them up on this. I went thru a time when I first got saved where the enemy of our soul would inject very negative,
    thoughts into my mind, they were definatly not my thoughts, and were repulsive to me, I dealt with them by rebuking them, in Jesus mighty name, they would leave, and just like a spoiled child, they would soon come back, but I was relentless in rebuking them, and eventually they left!!! Praise God I had the victory. And it will work for you the same way. Fill your mind with Gods word, very important, play praise and worship music, continually, the enemy hates to hear Jesus being praised, and he will flee. Suicide is something that I think the enemy tempts us all with, but rebuke it too, plead the blood of Jesus over your mind, say it out loud, devil I rebuke you, I belong to Jesus, you have no more right to me, and I want nothing to do with you, I cover my mind, my thoughts, my body, my will, all that I am with the precious blood of Jesus my Lord and my Savior, and I rest in Him, be gone now, go to dry places, seek rest and find none. (That is scripture), and continually praise the Lord for what he is doing in your life. God bless and keep you.Amen.

    I think you're right, there is no place for those kind of thoughts, as you are a beloved child of God:

    1 John 3:1
    3​ See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

    Romans 8:15
    For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!

    Sometimes I struggle with insecurity as well, but I'd like to encourage you to look at your identity in Christ and I believe most of those thoughts you are having will be farther from you .

    Welcome to the site, hope your time here makes you smile
