Embracing or accepting the OCD

I am a spiritual person.  I believe in prayer.  I believe that Jesus is Lord.  Being a believer is not hard.  It is dealing with OCD that is tough.  I had to struggle with having these particular thoughts for many years.  The truth is, I have to embrace or rather, accept them.  That is the real struggle.  While I do wish they would go away and not have any compulsions, I realize that reacting to those thoughts in a negative way may actually feeding those thoughts.  I admit that I have tried a lot of things, if not everything.  I still have my fears, annoyances, and doubts.  I would like to be able to accept that not only do I have this issue, but to embrace it.  That means what?  I hope the answer will not be an uncertain one.
