how to handle doubts as a Christian


I sure am glad my last post was about grace because today I’m feelin’ the lack of it.  Doesn’t mean it isn’t there.  God’s grace probably shines on us more often than we realize.

Do you ever have days like that?  Days when you’re feeling “unsettled”, not quite “with it”. It’s usually days like that I find myself doubting. Doubting what you ask?

Lots of things:

  • Where I stand with some people.
  • Past decisions.
  • Future decisions.
  • My faith. (meaning the strength of mine)

I seldom doubt myself in other regards.  I’m pretty confident about a lot of things. Today, not so much. Maybe it’s because I was feeling under the weather a little this morning.  I have IBD  that has plagued me on and off from childhood.  Sometimes, I go months without symptoms and then all of sudden, there it is.  I deal with it but it’s draining at times.

So what am I going to do about my doubt today?


That’s right.


Not every little thought, not every little discomfort needs to be addressed.  We need to give ourselves a break and not take ourselves or our troubled emotions too seriously.  Especially when we’re not feeling so well.  I learned a long time ago to give myself a wide berth.  If I’m still feeling this way in a few days, then I will address it because then it means something is going on inside.

So if you’re just kind of unsettled today and you find yourself letting that feeling invade your thinking and emotions, take a break from yourself.

You can deal with it tomorrow.
