I am sure I am not the only one who often battles doubts and lack of faith. It baffles my mind to think that Christians struggle with doubt and lack of faith. Aren’t we, as Christians, supposed to have strong faith? Scripture reveals many of the heroes of faith struggled with doubt.
If you face doubts and waning faith, be encouraged, you are not alone. We all, at some point, ask many questions. Good thing, our God is bigger than our questions. In fact, He is pleased when we ask questions. He wants us to be honest with Him. Our healing and growth start when we acknowledge our struggles with doubt and lack of faith.
This song, “Lord, There Are Times” better explains my exact feelings when I am in doubt: Please prayerfully reflect on the words. Bring your questions, doubts and struggles to God. He is ready to answer and heal.
Lord, There are times
Lord, there are times when I have to ask ‘Why?’
Times when catastrophe gives faith the lie.
Innocents suffer and evil holds say,
Grant me some answers, Lord, teach me your way.
Lord, there are times when I have to ask ‘Where?’
Times when it seems that you simply don’t care.
Though I call out, you seem distant, aloof,
Grant me some answers, Lord, show me some proof.
Lord, there are times when I have to ask ‘What?’
Times when your love is not easy to spot.
What is life’s purpose and what of me here?
Grant me some answers, Lord, make your will clear.
Lord, there are times when the questions run fast,
Times when I fear that my faith may not last.
Help me, support me, Lord, help me get through.
Lead me through darkness till light shines anew.
