Doubt, disbelief, and despair

“Lord I believe, help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24). There are times when I find myself in this moment of belief and unbelief. The Bible is filled with such contradiction, paradox, uncertainty. And so is life.

“God is everywhere, yet not in space” (Divine Love and Wisdom 130). Easter is the perfect time to reflect on God’s presence in our lives, especially in times of darkness and confusion.

Everyone doubts. Our spiritual lives are richer for those times of doubt, despair, and disbelief. I encourage you to wrestle with your doubt. Learn from it. Be honest and stay open. I hope that the content provided here acknowledges and honors the parts of you in doubt, despair, and disbelief. May it lift you up so you have more and more moments where you know and feel the Lord’s presence.

"Loving our neighbor as ourselves is simply not dealing dishonestly or unfairly with people, not harboring hatred or burning with revenge against them, not speaking ill of them or slandering them, not committing adultery with their spouses, and not doing anything of that nature to them."
