Question about reassurance

I have a tendency to say, in my mind, over and over things like “I love You Jesus” and “I don’t ever want to be without You Lord” to counter the ocd thoughts. Would this be considered reassurance or rumination?

Hello. That is a compulsion. You are responding to the thoughts so they are not going to go away if you keep doing this. I think in this God is calling you to grow in trust in his mercy. He knows it's ocd. God bless and try to stop doing compulsions.
