It is not uncommon for all people, including Catholics, to experience doubt in their lives. I myself have experienced struggle and doubt many times. As a matter of fact, at a point in my life I went through nights of questioning and crying out to God for answers, comfort, and assurance.
Doubt is something that all Catholics are bound to struggle with at some point in our walk with Christ. We may feel uncertain of our faith, of God’s existence, and of his love towards us. Although being in a state of doubt is a very tough place to be, I do not think that it is something that we should be afraid of. Contrary to the common notion, doubt is not the opposite of faith but a part of it instead. See, if we never have any doubts, then maybe we are not exploring our faith and discovering God enough.
Today, if you are going through a trial or temptation that is causing you to doubt God, call unto him and seek answers from his word. As it says in Philippians 4:6-7: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
