Doubt is something that we’ve all experienced at one time or another. Could it be that it isn’t the doubt we are experiencing but that our Faith is wavering? This is possible, for often especially in the fast times we live today, it is an instant type of gratification that we have grown to expect. I know from my own personal experience that I have battled with doubts and my Faith. I, then turn to the Word Of God:
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways
James 4: 7-10 says, “purify your hearts, you double-minded.” Faith is belief without doubt. We all have the gift of “free will” and are able to discern for ourselves if we choose to believe. Jesus said, “Do not be afraid; only believe ”
Whenever I have feelings of doubt overcoming me, I am called to re-read the prayer hanging on my bedroom wall. The Trust Him prayer, this gives me an inner peace and only serves to make me not only stronger as an individual but stronger in my Faith.
Trust Him when dark doubts assail thee, Trust Him when thy strength is small, Trust Him when to simply trust Him, seems the hardest thing of all. Trust Him, He is ever faithful, Trust Him, his dear will is best, Trust Him for the Heart of Jesus is thy surest place of rest. Trust Him,then, in storm and sunshine ALL thy cares upon Him cast, Till the term of life is over, And thy trusting days are past.
“Sacred Heart Of Jesus, In Thee I Place My Trust“
