None of us like to claim these or acknowledge them to others.
The truth is, though, that they are part of the human condition. They are more common than not.
I have observed that we all process differently in times of stress, grief, or brokenness. So often we want to appear “strong.” And just want others to be “strong.” But under the surface – doubt, fear – inadequacy (or perhaps shame or heartache).
The beauty of Jesus is that He is not put out or turned off by these feelings in us. For sure He doesn’t want us to stay in that place, but He meets us there. He meets us with grace and truth. Grace to know we are accepted and still loved. Truth to draw us into who we really are.
Let’s be willing to meet each other there, too. Let’s not be fakes or posers. Let’s provide space for the questions, the wrestling, the insecurities. And let’s walk with each other towards Jesus…. to the only One Who can bring transformation… to the only One who can bring us to the place of
Doubt turning to Faith
Fear surrendered to Peace
Inadequacy transformed by Acceptance and Identity
