And despite the fact that I seem to have a lot of answers here, I also have my fair share of unanswered questions and doubts still. We will always have deep, hidden doubts and fears, even as Christians. (While I may have doubts and questions about how God acts and moves and answers prayer, I do not have any doubts about God’s existence or love.) And these are usually hidden pretty good until we face trials and tragedies. And then, all of a sudden, we’ll find ourselves thinking and wondering things that we never thought we would. But I want it to be known that it is normal to have doubts and unanswered questions. The key is to be honest with the Lord about them and to let them drive us closer to Him. The more we do this, the more we will grow in our confidence and faith, and the more we will learn to seek refuge in Him when other doubts spring up.
Let me start by looking at these two examples from my life: a job that I got and the first home we rented.
