Reading the Bible is an important part of how we can grow in our faith, but we know many people question why the Bible is not relevant for today. With its old language and confusing references, it can feel irrelevant or disconnected. But these Scripture meditations are meant to help us bridge that disconnect and encounter reasons why the Bible IS relevant.

Doubting Your Faith

Anyone else have doubtful and anxious thoughts when it comes to your faith sometimes? We hope it’s not just us.

It’s scary to invite God into these moments of uncertainty because you worry about him being upset (or even angry) with you. But the great thing about our loving and patient God is that you can ask him for help in these moments of anxiousness and doubt! He wants you to call out to him instead of giving in to those distressing thoughts.

Join us in giving those thoughts over to him through this Scripture meditation.

Psalm 139:23-24

23 Search me, God, and know my heart;

   test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24 See if there is any offensive way in me,

    and lead me in the way everlasting.
