Facing doubt in your faith.
Look how God created and man enhanced
Doubt should make you uncomfortable.
Yes doubt should make you uncomfortable. But discussing your doubts should be a free and easy experience. Facing doubt is better than ignoring it. Faith is only as strong as its foundation in you. If that foundation has some cracks get in there and find out why and fix them or at least strengthen the area around them.
So I preach today about doubt. Doubting is not a sin.
Doubting is not a violation of any commandment. Doubting is natural.
I freely admit to having doubts. I really do doubt about all that killing of children in the Old Testament. I really do doubt about physical lakes of fire. I sometimes doubt at my sanity in believing in wild miracles. Sometimes I doubt that my love is strong enough. Look there I feel better just admitting some doubts.
So I preach today about things I have no doubt about
Love is part of God. Love can conquer all things because it is in and of itself divine. I 100% have no doubt that I am loved by God. I 100% believe that God loves you.
Now: Does having doubts make me less of a Believer?
Maybe it does. Maybe I should have no doubts. But that is a good thing. It means I have room to grow and that God is not done with me. It means I have been chosen to learn more and share my doubts with others so that they also may grow.
Now we can share our doubts and console and love each other in our weakness.
Thank you Lord for giving me doubts so that I can search more and understand more of your love.
To all of those who look to me for guidance and lose some respect for me, because of my doubts; Amen. For I am not to be respected in the Word. Only my Love is to be respected, for that comes directly through the Spirit in Love and is divine. Reject me and my human ways, reject my words if they do not come to you in Love. Reject my doubts if they do not bring solace. Reject me, as I try to reject me.
Now go doubt that Spring will ever come!!!
