Top Ten Tuesday: D is for Doubtful

Top Ten Tuesday: D is for Doubtful

Top Ten Tuesday

In Nicole Nordemon’s song “Fool for You,” she sings these words:

I admit that in my darkest hours I’ve asked what if,
What if we created some kind of man made faith like this,
Out of good intention or emotional invention,
and after life is through there will be no You?

Doubt has plagued Christians ever since Christ walked the earth.  Since we cannot visibly see or audibly hear God, many people wonder if He is even real.  Even born-again Christians doubt the security of their salvation.  We doubt that God will fulfill His promises.  We wonder if Christ will ever return to earth.

God anticipated our doubt, and He speaks to it in His Word.

Growing up, I always ate cereal dry, picking up one piece at a time with my fingers.  It wasn’t until college, when Honey Nut Cheerios became my go-to cafeteria dinner, that I learned to put milk in the cereal bowl and eat it with a spoon.

10 Verses for When You Feel Conflicted

When it comes to making decisions, I am like a squirrel on a four-lane highway.   I sprint back and forth, considering all the options until WHAM! it’s too late.  A decision is made for me.

Decision-making always leaves me feeling conflicted.  I see the pros and cons of each side, and I am anxious concerned that I will be bummed by the decision I make unwise.  I struggle to distinguish between what my deceitful heart wants and what God’s perfect will wants.

1.Jeremiah 17:9

The heart is deceitful above all things
    and beyond cure.
    Who can understand it?

The problem is that I am trying to rely on my own wisdom to make the decision.  The Bible shows us that we do not have to make decisions alone.
