Have you ever doubted your faith? It happens to almost everyone at some time. This doesn’t mean something is wrong with you. It’s better to be sincere about it instead of faking it.
While more prayer is essential to get past moments of doubt, it also helps to use your head. Remember, the Bible is more than just a religious text. It has many historically accurate narratives backed up by other non-Christian sources of evidence. Also, there are centuries of saints, martyrs and modern-day Christians who can inspire us with their testimonies of faith.
Our belief in Jesus Christ gives us eternal answers about our origin, meaning, morality and destiny. In the end, it all rests upon the Gospel message. If God exists, and he sent his Son to give his life for you… what does this mean to you? What impact does this have on your life? On your soul?
Go back to God and his Word. Let him reveal the answers to your heart.
A message and prayer from Vincent:

“Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life;
Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Oh blessed Lord,
Despite my sin and shame, you set me free.
I never knew true mercy until I knew you.
At first, it was all fresh, new. Perfect.
Now, as the years pass I see hurt and pain. I see
confusion, even betrayal in your church.
My mind wanders. My heart begins to doubt.
Is it worth it, this thing called faith?
The world mocks and ridicules and gives me a million reasons to not believe.
Is Christ still real to me?
So I toss and turn and struggle. I wrestle with God.
And then I remember…
That deep dark pit. When I was all alone. Only you came. Nobody else could. I was unreachable.
And I remember…
All the transformations, the miracles you showed me. I pull them from the warehouse of my soul. Countless testimonies. Lives restored.
And I remember….
Where I came from. Where I’m going.
And who I am.
I go to the house of my Father… to my King…
No greater love.
Fresh. New. Perfect.
