Here is a story: I feel guilty every single day, because it seems like I cannot hit the mark. Sadly, I have been neglecting Bible readings for a bit and when I read, I just don't seem as focused anymore. And then comes school. At school, even though I do try my best to follow God's commands, it feels like I am out of touch with Christ, and this has started to creep into my life at home as well. I don't like to read the Bible while eating, because I can't focus, so I usually look at some memes or go on ebaumsworld, and end up wasting long amounts of time on my phone, which, in turn, gives me less time to read the Bible later. So, as you can see, I have been neglecting the Bible. And I just feel out of touch with God because He does not talk to me like how you guys describe it, and I don't feel His presence. So, I have been feeling really guilt and I have condemning myself because of these things. The thing is, that I don't want to be encouraged all that much because I believe that that promotes the same lifestyle that I have been having. How do you deal with guilt and condemnation? Sin is another big thing.
