A Debate With Doubt



  Strong waves of doubt and disbelief
Have stormed the minds of men…
Emotionally uncertain hearts
Must learn to trust again.
 
While shadows hide assurance
Light reveals what God has planned…
Yet confidence can only come
When we refuse to hold doubt’s hand.
 
If suspicion is replaced with trust
And misgivings with persuasion
Then perhaps the struggling will cease
And we’ll rise to the occasion.
 
Faith must filter in through trust
And trust through Christ our Savior.
Those immersed in things of God
Should be immune to doubt’s behavior.
 
It sheds suspicion like a shadow
But mere shadows are not real.
They simply try to block the light
Of things trust can and will reveal.
 
We should not let shadows sabotage
Our lives in any way.
Any debate with doubt can stop
If we will just trust and obey.

Proverbs 3:5-8
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
 
Don't be impressed with your own wisdom.
Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

Then you will have healing for your body
and strength for your bones.
 
Matthew 21:21
Then Jesus told them, "I tell you the truth,
if you have faith and don't doubt, you can
do things like this and much more. You can even
 say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and
 thrown into the sea

 
 Hebrews 11:1
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for
 will actually happen; it gives us assurance about
 things we cannot see. 




There Shall Be Showers Of Blessings
