Will God still forgive you if you commit the same sin over and over again?
From a young age, I don't really know why, but I've kept getting interested in watching kissing scenes and stuff. I have this weird feeling -- pleasurable, I guess? -- and I started masturbating without even knowing I was doing it until years and years later. I don't even know where I got it from!
And I keep feeling really guilty and remorseful every time I masturbate or watch some kissing scene. But everytime I do that, I know that it is a sin, but I keep having this urge to watch it and stuff. But after I do it, I suddenly "come back to my senses" and I feel really stupid for doing it.
I feel like I'm not trying hard enough, and I just keep hoping God will forgive me. But I don't think so cause I keep repeating my mistake even though I am aware of it?
Does God forgive repeat offenders? What are some steps we can take when facing habitual sin to break the cycle?
