Sure, I have a logical reasons behind my faith but they are not primary. The Gospel story of Divine Love creating, enjoying, mourning, intervening, self-sacrificing, redeeming, and restoring is so beautiful and so wholly other from all that I can imagine that I must believe it is true.
As I learn to embrace my rather obvious limits, my heart is beginning to embrace my deeper limits. I begin to accept myself as I am not as I portray myself to be. That’s freedom. That’s the sweet spot.
Faith is not the absence of doubt. It’s the volitional rejection of doubt’s paralysis in order to take one step further into trust. Faith is trusting that there’s a bigger story than what I can see.
