Did you know that when you confess something, you no longer have to fight alone? At least, that's my experience with confession. When your sin is brought to light, the devil no longer can dwell in the darkness.
While I was silently struggling with my scrupulosity burden, a few friends and I were sitting around, sharing prayer requests. I asked to go last. While my friends shared their struggles and what they wanted the others to pray for, I was having a battle within myself.
I was debating over whether to tell them about my spiritual OCD or not.
I was so close to making something up, some small issue that I'd ask them to pray for. But I knew that if I ever was going to heal from my soul sickness, I was going to have to bring it to light.
