Matthew 14:22-36
The Tension Between Faith and Doubt

As we make our way in the spiritual journey we often experience some turbulence between faith and doubt. We are like the father of the ill boy who cries out, “I believe, help my unbelief!” At our core we truly do believe in God’s loving presence but in the moment we are caught up in life’s storms and fears. Jesus encourages us to find our rest in him for it is his presence that dispels our fears. In him the tension between faith and doubt lessens and the comfort of his deep love sustains us as we travel our days under his loving hand.
