I was just reading my favorite ex-christian blog and came across a post about an individual’s de-conversion. They wrote that they “didn’t feel anything when they prayed.”
Well, sometimes I don’t either (i hope this is OK for me to say). Sometimes I talk to God and ask lots of stuff. Sometimes I’m intent on sitting and listening and He doesn’t seem to say anything. I wonder if my prayers are answered or if He’s really working on things.
Hear this: sometimes I doubt whether God is working on the things I think He ought to be working on.
Sometimes I look at the world around me and think, “God, what the heck is going on. Innocent people are suffering. Why?”
Sometimes I look around the church and say, “God, there are so many knuckleheads filling the church on Sunday morning, can’t you bring others?”
I just wanted to get that out there. Hopefully someone is reading this blog and may realize, “I have doubts, but God allows doubts. Doubts give us a direction to strive for.”
