Most of you know our family journey right now as we battle for our son Jordan’s healing. What a week we’re having in Tulsa, day-long doctor appointments, tests, discussions, it’s an experience like no other.
A dear friend told me a few days ago, that faith is not the absence of doubt, because if there remains no doubt then you really don’t need faith. Who needs faith for what is positively, certainly ours? Faith is choosing to believe and hang on regardless of unknowns. It’s a tension.
This may seem obvious, but to me it was one of those a-ha moments that set me free in a new dimension. Maybe because so often I’ll think, “What I need to do is just be stronger in my faith, or believe more, hope more, not be so scared or worried.
Ron and I both have an abiding peace amidst what still is hard to grasp as reality. All of us are gripping on tight to one another, and most of all to the ONE whose final assessment trumps all.
Another friend sent me this yesterday and it felt perfect for my heart, perhaps yours too.
