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.
