Self doubt has a way of taking hold of you and taking over every thought without you even consciously aware it is happening. When this happens your joy disappears and it may be awhile before you even realize what is going on. Oh you know that something isn’t right but you can’t quite put your finger on it. You start questioning every decision you need to make, you question relationships, your self-worth.
At this point one would hope that you would turn to God to ask for help; but even your dependence on God is put into question. Why would God help me? I haven’t been obedient, I don’t belong to a church, I don’t pray or read my bible like I know I should….why would He help me? God will help no matter where we are in life, we just have to ask because He loves us!
This is something that we need to remember when the doubt starts creeping in — we are loved by God.
My advice (which I need to remember to take myself) is to pray when doubt starts creeping in. God hears our prayers and will answer them according to His will. This is an important thing to do even if it is a minor decision that needs to be made….take it to God.
