Hello everyone. Sometimes when I get very close to God, I begin to notice every minor sin I do.
A few days ago at church, I began to have thoughts of pride and vain glory. I tried to fight it but to no avail. At church, I began to pray in my thoughts asking God to take away these thoughts from me. When nothing happened, I began to be depressed, because vain glory and pride takes away my peace and I was not able to get rid of the thoughts. What should I have done?
In the Bible it says "Rejoice in the Lord, again I say Rejoice!" I could not rejoice because of these thoughts.
Any help will be appreciated. I hope anyone can help me. Thanks everyone for your knowledge.
