Question:

I feel very terrible for what I have done, I feel like I am trapped in a world of sin and I can't seem to find my way out. I took an oath last year in our church youth meetings to never engage into sexual acts until I was married, but ever since, I have broken that promise three times.

Sometimes when I ask for the Lord's forgiveness I feel that He does not hear my prayers because I have sinned too many times and spat in His face, I am living a very difficult life when it comes to my faith. I don't know what happens to me so that I give in to temptations so easily. I know our God is a forgiving Father, but I just feel that my sins are too many to be forgiven.

Please help me I am a lost sheep.


Answer:

That you can be forgiven is something God has stated repeatedly in His Bible and God cannot lie (Titus 1:2). "But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. "Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?" says the Lord GOD, "and not that he should turn from his ways and live?"" (Ezekiel 18:21-23).

It sounds as if you are sorrowful for you sins, but you haven't really repented of them, or you haven't taken steps to change. I'm willing to listen if you want to discuss the problems with someone.
