    Default Need some advice

    Hello i am from India and English isn't my first language, so i hope everyone understands what i am trying to say. This is my first time using this site. I have been Christian since birth. And recently after hearing many pastors and leaders i have started reading bible. But from few months i find myself unnecessarily reading the same verse again and again or even the same word as if I haven't read it properly. And if i ignore that urge to read again it feels very heavy on my chest. It feels like if i don't then something bad might happen. And in my prayers I feel the urge to ask for the same thing again and again everyday, and it feels like a ritual. And i usually spend time on YouTube watching videos and if some Christian videos comes in suggestions i feel i should watch it and if i don't i feel bad about it. My heart feels heavy at times that i should ask God for protection. I hope people here could advice me

    First of all, welcome to CC. Second, this is more fitting for the bible forum. And third, it's IMPOSSIBLE to be "saved since birth".. Babies cannot claim Jesus as their Savior. But that's a discussion for the bible forum.. LOL

    It sounds to me as though you view a relationship with God as religious rather than personal. That you believe you have to force yourself to do what's right, but that is not quite what the bible teaches.
    We are to strive to do right and obey, but much of our good works happen as God changes us, then a sign of that inward change is outward change.
    Don't be so consumed by rules and instead focus on God, growth and learning.

    Also, it is not possible to be a Christian since birth. Being a Christian means realizing we are sinful and need Christ and through that becoming born again. You can't be born again as a baby. Perhaps that misconception is a huge part of your problems. It may be good to acknowledge, as an adult, these things things God requires us to own up to and confess.

    What allures and arouses the heart we can't figure out
    But it's the quickest way to account for what we prize
    And are most proud about
    These gods make promises but always lie to us
    The kinds of lies that says they'll keep us safe and satisfy us
    We blame the lies outside of us
    But it's the lie that lies inside that captures the depth of desires and false messiahs

    I hope that this site is edifying for you on your spiritual journey. It's not a bad thing to read a bible verse more than once. Depending on the stage of your spiritual maturity it is possible for a verse to hold a different meaning for you after a subsequent reading than it did the first time you read it or even the second or third time. I believe that this is what contemplation is in regards to bible reading and study. Like is says in the book of Isaiah, "Line upon line, precept upon precept, a little here, a little there". Glad to have you join us. Welcome to CC.

    Have you tried a study bible? Study bibles are helpful because they focus on a concept, or theme as it relates to a particular scripture. Study bibles are also fairly modern and many relate bible stories to current situations. Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Hi....i would say you are drawn to it for a reason.....it may be that you have prayed to god to help you and the holy spirit is leading you to that verse to answer your prayer. Compare the verse to things that have happened in your life in the past or maybe currently and see if you are then able to interpret the meaning. May i ask wot the verse is.?
