Lenten Devotion Day 7 March 1, 2023

What does it mean to you, to “have faith”? Is faith something you feel, like courage, or fear, or joy, or despair?

Today’s devotional writer reveals that her faith includes a healthy dose of doubt.

When I think about it, most of what I recognize as thoughts, feelings, moods, emotions within me, are all complex. Do I ever feel just one thing at a time? Do you?

I can be very excited about a new project, or idea, and also feel hesitant, and unsure.

When I feel happy to have a day off, that feeling can be shadowed, or perhaps seasoned by the sense of obligation I feel about things I’ve left undone.

I can feel trust that there is a loving God, at work in the universe, and still have questions about how that God goes about their work, and what actually catches that God’s attention.

I have mixed emotions.
