Help me with my unbelief, Lord!

How many times do I experience doubt, anxiety or even fear when contemplating a life-altering decision?

Way too many times! I’m even experiencing doubt right now as I’m typing this blog post. These emotions are symptoms of ‘unbelief’, an unreliable source of information.

It’s normal to experience these emotions though.

But when any of these emotions interfere with decision-making process, blurs the vision or even erases the possibilities of a brighter future, self-examination is crucial.

What am I saying to myself?

What if it does not work out in the long run? What if I make a mistake? What if …???

The what ifs can drive anyone ‘nuts’.

The reality is I will never know what’s going to occur next in my life only God does. Just know, He only wants the best for our future.

In Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’

In Mark 9: 23-24, Jesus reminds us ‘ …everything is possible for one who believes’

The reality is there is no guarantee in life.

Explore the risks and benefits of any given situation, pray for discernment and wisdom, wait and let God do the rest.

Help me with my unbelief, Lord!

One thought on “Help me with my unbelief, Lord!

  1. I have big trouble here a lot of the time especially living with my general anxiety disorder over 30 years. I have gotten better with prayer, I have the most trouble when I have to depend on others to complete my task and I have no control over them, and I start to lose faith, which saddens me. Oh Lord forgive me for my unbelief, Amen.
