Dealing with Doubt

Today's Reading: Psalm 77-78 and Romans 10

My favorite non-Christian band is The Mountain Goats. They wrote a whole album inspired by the Bible. What's fascinating is that the album is not pro-Jesus or anti-Jesus but rather wrestling with the big themes of Scripture and how they interact with modern person's stories.

The song 'Romans 10:9' is about someone trying to hold onto biblical promises even though their life is falling apart. The song ends by quoting the Scripture but I get a sense the person's faith is not resolved. And honestly, that's okay. Part of discovering God and growing in faith is wrestling with doubt.
