”I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.”
Reading this passage I would initially say it is about faith- faith that can move mountains. But the flip side of that coin is of course doubt. When doubt consumes me, it is very hard to move forward. There is first the doubt in my own abilities. There may be doubt about whether God cares or is interested in my struggles. But there is no room for doubt when I reach out to God and move forward. God will give me all the power I need.
Holy Father, your presence in my life leaves no room for doubt, but sometimes doubt creeps in anyway. Help me to stay strong, God, with you. Amen
