"It's ok for you to say that we walk by faith, but it's hard when I have so many doubts."
This Sunday we look at our next 'awkward text,' that we walk by faith and not by sight. It's awkward because our faith can fail, and texts like this can make us feel like we are failures.
But faith has never been straight forward. Think of Peter, one moment walking on the water and the next sinking. Or Thomas, who just can't believe the crazy story that Jesus is alive.
God doesn't expect us to have perfect faith straight away. If Peter and Thomas struggled, so will we. There will be many times when, like them we could have done better. This is normal, not a mark of failure. Like children we have to learn to walk.
Sometimes our faith hits an unexpected crisis. Sometimes we come out with a stronger but very different faith.
Faith is about seeking God, it's not the end of our search.
