Everyone has doubt. We all experience moments when we question…’where is God in all of this?’ or ‘Why is this happening?’ This has happened to people throughout history. Even the disciples, who lived during the life of Jesus on earth had doubts. Having doubt and questions is natural and it is a starting point to explore and learn, so what do you do to find answers to your questions and your doubts? God wants us to have questions and to ask Him…having doubt and questions is ok…what you do with those doubts and questions is key to your faith journey. Amen.
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
