Are there any Christians on here that have ever (seriously) backslidden, but somehow managed to find their way back to God?

That's where I am right now. I'm not where I should be by any means, although I want to be. This question is for those that have been where I am. I'm posting anon because I do not want to be judged, but if this is you, I would love to meet you so I will be more than happy to send you a PM. I know that I'm not the only one that's ever been here.

  • If any woman says that they have never back- slid according to man's thoughts on the subject then I will have to be accused of calling them lies being spoken.
    All of us in some time or another have stepped back wards. It is human and we are flesh. We have the mind of mortals and we sin even without trying.
    Sure the women and men of God that grow up in the church and take over their daddy's pulpit think that they never do....the truth is...we all have and we all do.
    Yes, I back slid and big time.
    It ruined my witness for the Lord. I was miserable and felt dirty before My God.
    Then I listened to my soul and came back to my Lord and senses.
    Nothing and no one can snatch us from His loving hands. As Believers we need to repent iven if we feel that we are all safe and secure. We are no less sinners than them that are in the world.
    He loves you, He died for you, He is waiting for us to come back when we walk away.
    Your God.

  • I think backsliding is the human mind attempting to take back control of your life. THere is a struggle, and lots of guilt, as you are torn between trusting something you've never seen with your own eyes with your entire life, and keeping your life for yourself. I have been there. I came out the other side. I wont say what my solution was.. but I hope you find peace and fight the guilt, b/c God never wants you to feel guilty, and its not productive. You didn't say anything about feeling guilt, sorry if i'm assuming... I know I spent most of my life carrying it around and it sucked!

  • Yes.
    Go back to church, find support, read an inspirational book, say a prayer, count your blessings, realize that even if you forgot God he has never forgotten you.

  • My husband has, I would most definately say. And your welcome to pm me if you want. I am not sure what to tell you in regards to me, cause I am not sure what you mean in regards to serious backslidding. I guess I might have when I was about 19. Feel free to pm me if you want, I won't judge you. My sister, is kind of going through something right now, don't want to say, cause I don't want to get bashed, but yeah.
