Embracing Doubt is like Embracing Night
"For the Beauty of the Earth" painting by nakedpastor David Hayward

I was taught that doubt was to be greatly feared.
Doubt was a sure sign that you were backsliding.
Doubt was an effective tool of the devil.
So doubt was to be avoided at all costs. If it crept up on you it was best to ignore it.
We now call this denial.
But, what if doubt is to spirituality what a dark mountain pass is to a journey?
What if doubt is a part of life, just like night is a part of a day?
Doubt, like darkness, is a natural phase in your spiritual life.
