An issue has been weighing heavily on my heart for some time now. I'm growing anxious and depressed thinking about this issue. I want to ask for forgiveness, to forgive myself, and to finally be able to put the issue to rest (once and for all). However, I don't know how to. I didn't grow up in the church, so I really don't know the way I'm supposed to ask for help and how if I know if I've been forgiven. Furthermore, I don't know if I'm worthy of being forgiven.
 
This has created so much stress and anxiety in my life. As much as I don't want to think about this issue, I keep thinking about -- day in and day out.

Hi Dollish,
 
First, if you have not already, you should repent for whatever it is that is weighing heavily on your mind.
 
Repentance means a sincere turning away, in both the mind and heart, from self to God.
 
Once you have repented, then you ask God for forgiveness. He will forgive you!! It isn't a matter of whether or not you "feel" worthy. It's not about your feelings, it's about what the word of God says. In his word he forgives us when we seek out forgiveness. There are so many scriptures that talks about forgiveness. I have listed a few for you. Please seek out God and his word and he will reveal to you that he does not condemn you. He loves you, and he wants the best for you. His word says that he did not send his son to condemn the world but that they may be saved through him. John 3:17
 
Matt. 6:14-15
For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
 
1John 1:19
 
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousnes
 
Isaiah 43:25-26
"I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.  Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence.

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't. I don't know how to Confused I know there's no right or wrong way to pray amd that essentially you're talking to God, but I've tried praying before and it seems more like I'm reciting something than really praying.

What if this thing is not something I do often; something that happened once. How would I repent for that? I've turned away from it.
 
Maybe I just don't understand how all of us this works. I just assumed that once I feel that I'm able to be forgiven, I will accept it (if that makes sense) or I'll be able to let it go. How do you know once you're forgiven? Do you get a sign?
 
Thank you. I will look into those verses.

Once is all it takes and when you repent (turn away), you ask for forgiveness and you are forgiven. There is know sign. It's believing what the word of God says.

I hope that you eventually sought out a professional. Even talk therapy can help; you don't have to jump straight to medication.

Depression is a real medical condition that isn't caused by some personal weakness or doubt. Would you be hesitant to seek professional help in treating, I dunno, diabetes or hypertension or something?

Good luck! Smile

I go through depression off and on. My friend tells me to pray on it, but I just can't do it. I feel like I've committed so many sins, that I'm already going straight to hell.
