Doubt is a normal part of the Christian life—an inevitable part of broken people living in a very broken world. That is why it’s called “The Christian Faith” and not “The Christian Certainty.” When we go through a “Dark Night of the Soul” God uses that time to provoke us to ask deep questions, and to grow spiritually and physiologically. When you experience pain in this life, you will sometimes doubt that God sees, or knows, or hears. You might even doubt his existence. Turn that doubt toward Jesus and learn how the truth of scripture helps you through your pain. Life can get hard. But transformation is possible through God’s love expressed through the life of Jesus. Lean in to that.
