The Struggle to Believe

The father instantly cried out, "I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!" ~Mark 9:24

Don't feel alone if you struggle with faith and hope sometimes. I feel you. We're eye-to-eye on that as I write this blog. We try and make it a cute little thing.  Almost cartoonish.  I believe! But believing is hard sometimes!  Exercising your faith can evoke tears and even screams as if you're wrestling with the God of the Universe and yourself as you struggle to hold your own as your fears and doubts wage war with your hopes and beliefs.  A real faith walk is no comedy.

In many ways I feel like I'm in the battle of my life.  How big can I believe?  How much can I trust the Lord? Can I launch out into deeper waters knowing He will empower me to walk and catch me if I fall?  I often feel like the man crying out to Jesus, "Help me believe!"

Nevertheless, I press on.  I trust God and I trust His timing.  I trust His calling and purposes for me.  That is the message I want to leave with you.  If you feel momentary doubts, be encouraged.  That makes you just like Moses, Joshua, Abraham and Sarah, David, Paul, Timothy, Joseph the Father of Jesus and countless others.  Already my life looks nothing like it looked even a year ago.  He has been faithful to this point and I know He'll carry me on.

You be encouraged, too!
