“Some people feel guilty about their anxieties and regard them as a defect of faith. I don’t agree at all. They are afflictions, not sins. Like all afflictions, they are, if we can so take them, our share in the Passion of Christ”-C.S. Lewis
It is okay to struggle with your faith. Let me repeat: IT IS OKAY TO STRUGGLE WITH YOUR FAITH.
Struggling with your faith means that you have, at the very least, the faith of a mustard seed, which Jesus says is enough to move mountains.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”-Matthew 17:20
I know some of you feel lost, as I did-no, do, and it can be very difficult to find God in these situations. He’s there, even if you can’t see Him. Even if you can’t feel Him. And he loves you unconditionally, no matter how little your faith may seem.
Keep pushing forward. Keep struggling.
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”-2 Corinthians 12:9-10
His power is made perfect in weakness. Perfect. In your lowest, darkest times.
Hang tight my loves. He is making all things new.
