Wrestling with doubt…

February 18, 2006 — 1 Comment

Two weeks ago…

Two weeks ago, Shaun spent some major time wrestling with doubt. His honest journey is chronicled in his blog in a series of installments, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

If you have ever doubted or wondered what it was like to doubt and wrestle with your faith, give SHLOG a read. His posts read like a Frank Peretti novel… excpet that it’s real.

Thanks, Shaun, for your honesty and vulnerability.

I'm a picker. I'm a grinner. I'm a lover. And I'm a sinner. I make my music in the sun.

One response to Wrestling with doubt…

  1. I sat there alone in my room, and I read the comments from Shaun. I can't tell you how many times, especially in the past few weeks where I have felt the "doubt" and "fear" and "hopelessness" that Shaun felt. I have had to deal with some major family issues lately, and being the only christian in the family I felt like my cries to God for help were falling on deaf ears. My addictions which I am still struggling with left me with a sense of hopelessnesss.I had tears in my eyes when I read the verses from that song "Abba Father" I am reminded of how much my "father" loves me and cares for me, and will always be there for me. He has always been there for me, and he never leaves me. I love my "father" and more than anything my desire is to grow closer to him.I'm always the type of person that gets so caught up in the distractions and business of day to day living that I place unwilling "obstacles" in God's path. lately, I've been finding the time before an appointment, or at lunch or before I go to bed to read God's word, lately it's been alot in the book of Proverbs Proverbs 16:3 "Commit to the Lord in whatever you do, and your plans will succeed" The word commit is a very strong word, and I know that in my seasons of doubt, that when I "commit" to follow the Lord and his ways, not mine, that no "fear" or "doubt" will overtake me.Thank you for helping me see things a little more clearer.
