It’s easy to think that Christianity is about being certain. It’s easy to let a little piece of doubt keep us from taking the leap of faith. But doubt is a part of human life, uncertainty is a part of deep faith, and God is comfortable with our questions. We are free to cry out, "I believe; help my unbelief!”

Lord I Believe; Help My Unbelief

We like to say that faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains; but none of us can move mountains. We like to think that anything is possible for those who believe; but there are too many times when nothing seems possible. Sometimes the most we can ask for is a smidgen of faith. Sometimes all we can do is beg for a bit of belief. And God is there, too.

The Sound of Silence

Everyone wants to hear God in a wind that breaks rocks. Everyone wants to feel God in an earthquake that splits mountains. Everyone wants to see God in a fire that burns every doubt away. And, sometimes, God shows up in those things. But, sometimes, when we are looking for the God who is love, we only find a sheer silence.

The Dark Night of the Soul

Psalm 88 might be the most despairing moment in scripture: a poem of unrelieved gloom, a song of hopeless sorrow, a scripture of all-but-abandoned faith. And God hears it and is moved.

A Glimmer of Hope

Thomas is a hero because he demands extraordinary evidence for extraordinary claims. Thomas is a villain because he takes it way too far. Sometimes, a glimmer of faith is all that we can see. Sometimes, a glimmer of faith is at that we need. Because if we feed that faith, and if we care for that faith, it might just blossom into something beautiful.
