When I was younger, I used to worry about my faith a lot.

The Bible would talk about needing to trust in God or how important faith was, and I’d think - I have doubts, what’s wrong with me that I’m not faithful enough??

My mom was thankfully wise enough to know that even the ones to whom God showed favor were at times doubtful and God could still love them.

I always think of that when I read the glorious praise of the psalms - sure, King David, you’re happy now, but just wait till the psalm where you are sure God has abandoned you. It makes me smile - and helps me feel a little less alone!

Do you lean more on the trusting side of faith or are you someone who has more doubts? Where do you look to for support and guidance?
