I have believed in Jesus every since I was little. I gave my life to Christ when I was little. I have always back slidden (even though I knew the truth) and have repented many times. I was caring about the things of this world and not God. For Matthew 6:24 says that No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

About two years ago, I was in an adulterous affair. Then out of nowhere I suddenly became ill. The doctors could not find anything wrong with me but I felt sick every day. I had a dream of a black dark evil image in my bedroom mirror. I realize that my sickness was because of my sin. I have totally and truly repented from my sins. Now I am living a life trying to please God and not myself or the world.

I was still battling with my health. One reason that I am battling with my health is because I won’t totally forgive myself for committing adultery. For Matthew 6:15 says if you refuse to forgive others (including yourself), your Father will not forgive your sins. Micah 7:19 also says that God promises to cast our sins into the depths of the ocean--so far away and inaccessible that we never need to worry about them ever again. God doesn't just forgive our sins; He wipes them completely away.

Therefore, I was not having faith in God’s word that my sins are forgiving and cast away. That is why I was still experiencing sickness in my body.

For Hebrews 11:6 says that it is impossible to please God without faith.

And, Romans 4:3-25 says
3 For the Scriptures tell us, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”[a]
4 When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. 5 But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.
6 David also spoke of this when he described the happiness of those who are declared righteous without working for it:
7 “Oh, what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sins are put out of sight.
8 Yes, what joy for those
whose record the LORD has cleared of sin.”[b]
16 So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s. For Abraham is the father of all who believe. 17 That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations.”[d] This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing.
18 Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!”[e] 19 And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb.
20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. 22 And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. 23 And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded 24 for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.
So I just want to let everybody know - even though you have sin a million times over and over again, just turn from your sins and sin no more. Once you have truly repented in your heart your sins are forgiven and thrown away. God does not remember your sins anymore. So, don’t look back at your sins just keep on moving forward and progressing into the things of God. (Remember what happen to Lot’s wife when she looked back and was turned into a pillar of salt - Genesis 19:26)
And plus remember that is a way for Satan to hold you back from God and his promises.
And ask God to help you with the process. For Exodus 15:2 says that the Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him—my father’s God, and I will exalt him!
