A while back, I wrote a short blog post that was inspired by a friend. In it, I mentioned her posting a question asking whether or not you let (false) guilt control you and the things you do.
Yesterday, I was listening to a Joyce Meyer video and she said:
"The devil can try to make us feel guilty - false guilt - when we didn't even do anything wrong."
I don't know about you, but false guilt plays a huge part in my OCD.
Over the years, satan has tried to make me feel guilt (and still does) for so many things that I haven't done.
A lot of times, the enemy plays the "what-if" card to make me doubt myself and make me feel (false) guilt.
The thing we need to remember about false guilt is that it's false. It's untrue. It's based on a lie.
