It seems like being known as "Doubting Thomas" is a bad rap? But what if it's ok to doubt? There's a difference between wanting to know if something is true or right and being so stubborn that you don't care what the truth is you're not gonna believe, you're not interested.
What If I Doubt? will be a Biblical look at the causes/circumstances that cause us pause in our beliefs and how we can move past those times to a greater trust in God or in others.
What are reasons you have doubted? Or maybe you currently have questions that cause you to put your relationship with God or someone on hold.
I've found it's common to pause things when you feel like you've been lied to. Maybe you trusted someone and they let you down. What you expected from them didn't happen. So now you doubt what they tell you they will do in the future.
It's also common for people to doubt God after something hurtful has happened in life. How can they trust God when this terrible thing has happened?
One thing for sure is this, people who are willing to honestly question and wrestle through their doubts come out much stronger on the other side. Is that you? Do you struggle with questions and doubts? Welcome to the club that includes John the Baptist, Abraham & Sarah, Thomas and Peter to name a few.
One thing I've found helpful if you struggle today with doubt is to be willing to admit and identify the issue for you. Then invite people you trust to enter into your questions and be there with you!
What If you Doubt? Well you're not alone. God doesn't intend you to stay there. See ya Sunday!
PS- Thank you for praying and joining us on Sunday. We had right around 200 worship our Risen King this past week. Many friends and family joining in. God is at work!
