faith-doubt

There have been many times over the years that my faith has taken a hit. I know I am not alone. In the everyday and not so everyday storms of life, sometimes our faith is hijacked by the spiritual flu of doubt that has been going around since the beginning of time. There  is no vaccination.   This doesn’t necessarily mean we have failed. One night in a terrible storm, as  Peter’s faith faltered (Matthew 14), he reached out to Christ, the only one who could help. He was afraid, but he still looked to Christ for safety. When you are apprehensive about the troubles around you and doubt God’s presence or ability to help, you must remember that he is the only one who can help.  What I’m saying to you is, when you feel like your are about to drown in a sea of doubt, you’ve got to reach out!  That is all God expects you to do.  You do the reaching and he’ll do the rest. Next time you struggle in this area, Matthew 14 is a great read.

 Something to think about
