For me, I like the definition of sin as "to miss the mark"-meaning I sin when I stray From my life's purpose. As a survivor and recovering addict, and former self-righteous, angry man-my aim is getting better as I leave behind the things that don't work and cause me and others anguish.
I know my creator has a plan for me and has saved me many times-he is invested in my happiness and joy and usefulness to others. When i hurt others or stray from my purpose, God is sad.
As for being confused about "stuff that feels right" my gut sense is the best guide. I also have men in my life I trust and respect who give me guidance when I ask for it.
Developing these relationships and gut sense takes effort, but is worth it
Since I have to be honest deep down to make this all work.
