We give ourselves to God and then struggle profoundly with the relationship.
We are drawn in and then want to flee in fear.
We move from faith to doubt, trust to confusion, intimacy to a feeling of abandonment.
Coming to faith is like falling in love. It can be a head-over-heels rush to the altar or a slow acceptance that slips into a heartfelt embrace. Either way, eventually romance crashes headlong into reality.
Often we make things worse either by feeling guilty about our struggles with doubt or by trying to dismiss them as unimportant or insignificant. We may even become resentful that God does not simply step in to clear up our confusion.
When we find ourselves in any of these predicaments, the only way out is to face our uncertainties about God--deliberately and directly.
In Wrestling with God James Emery White explores these struggles we all face--struggles of heart, soul, mind and strength. And struggles to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Here you will find your tough questions about God addressed. Better still, you will find the way to renewed faith.
