Got Doubt?

This week we continue with the Easter story and the disciple Thomas’ struggle to believe Jesus is alive until he sees for himself. Where does doubt fit into your faith journey?

"Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier."  --Anonymous

Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He's sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.--Charles Stanley

May there always be a little faith in your doubt. -- Macrina Wiederkehr, The Song of the Seed

Christ never failed to distinguish between doubt and unbelief. Doubt is can't believe; unbelief is won't believe. Doubt is honesty; unbelief is obstinacy. Doubt is looking for light; unbelief is content with darkness.                               -- Henry Drummond, How to Learn How

“I have a lot of faith. But I am also afraid a lot, and have no real certainty about anything. I remembered something Father Tom had told me--that the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns.”                                                               --Anne Lamott, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith
