As Christians we may feel like we have to have it together all the time. Smile when we're hurting. Saying we're fine when we're not. Sometimes I just need to remind myself that it is ok to admit my lack of faith. I really love the bible verse in Mark chapter 9 verse 24. "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief." This man, the father of a demon possessed son "plead with Jesus to help him to have the greater faith that the Lord demanded of him." (John MacArthur) Sometimes I also have to plead with God to have greater faith. I have to come to Him humbly admitting my doubt, anger, hopelessness...because to who else can I go to?
