I must say that I can relate to that. I have so many times had a lingering doubt with things and I have had to ask the Lord to help me believe, I don't think that is a bad thing. I believe the Lord is there for everything we need, we are to be honest with him. Even if that means going to him and asking for his grace and mercy to help us trust and believe in him more. Jesus healed the boy. Jesus is compassionate and understanding. If we believe, all things are possible with God! That should give us the hope we need in this life, with God everything is going to be ok.

I was reading in Mark 9 this evening about the Father who brought his son to Jesus to be healed of a spirit he was tormented by. I can only picture it, a father wanting more then anything to have his precious child healed from something so horrific. Waiting and going to the Disciples only to be in the midst of arguing. Jesus came and asked them why they were arguing, and it was due to the fact that the disciples could not cast out the spirit. Jesus called them "unbelieving generation." The father then asked Jesus "if he could" do anything, would he? HA, That is laughable yet it is something that I myself have been guilty of! Would God really help me in my time of need? Would Jesus heal our loved ones, would he supply everything we need? So many times I have been an unbeliever and doubted God. Why is it that we think our God is so small? Its something that even 2,ooo years ago they struggled with the. Jesus said to the man that "ALL things were possible if you believe", the man said "I believe, help me with my doubt."
