Have you ever been a doubting Thomas?

I like the way gotquestions.org tells the story of the disciple Thomas and his faith.

“When Thomas heard the stories of the resurrection, he wouldn’t believe them until he saw Jesus with his own two eyes. Jesus accommodated Thomas’ lack of faith by making an appearance to him and allowing him to see and touch Him. Thomas responds in worship, and Jesus says to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Faith is believing the Word of God and acting upon it, not responding to our perceptions.

Grace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
