Hey Inland fam. I wanted to share this blog post from a friend at Resonate Church down in Pullman. Laura and I, as well as some of the leadership of Inland, spent some time with Resonate before moving to Spokane.
In her post, Maria talks about her doubt, and specifically sharing an experience with miraculous healing. She shares the verse that reads “I believe, help my unbelief”, which I’ve heard quite a few times, and always welcome as a reminder that faith isn’t like a light switch: it’s not just “on” or “off”.
For me, I know I believe in God, that Jesus dies for my sins, that I’m a sinner saved by grace…you know, the basics. But do I really believe God cares about the specific thing I’m dealing with right now? Or that my work friends need a relationship with Christ? Definitely not all the time. Maybe on a good day.
Hopefully this post is helpful to you. When you’ve finished, take a moment to meditate and be honest with yourself about where you are. Then talk to someone about it. You might be surprised what you hear back
