the paradox of doubt.

by kendraannie


We have faith in God.
And yet, we sometimes doubt Him.

We want physical evidence of The Ark of the Covenant.
We want to see the remains of Noah’s Ark.
We want scientific proof of everything in the Bible.
We want Him to answer prayers the way we want them answered.

We desire the tangible.

We want to see Him, hear Him, and touch Him.

But only through faith is He tangible.

How can I doubt when I see the darkness He pulled me out of?
How can I doubt when I DO see Him answer prayers?
How can I doubt when I see good and evil at work in this world?
How can I doubt when He heals people, visits people in dreams, keeps His promises, saves people from the muck and the mire, LOVES people, speaks to people, weeps with people, and extends the beautiful gifts of forgiveness and mercy to people?

I cannot doubt.

I refuse for any evolutionist to tell me that I am simply mass made up of cells with no purpose.

I. Have. Purpose.

My purpose is to live fiercely for the God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

I will have faith in that which I cannot see.

2 Corinthians 4:18
…as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

The enemy will sneak in doubt every now and then but I am the daughter of a God who will lovingly lead me back to His truths. A God who will graciously walk alongside me in my faith and not by my sight.
