Chapter 1, Page 11, Book 21

Doubt your doubt before you doubt your beliefs..

Chace Crawford

January 11th - feed your faith, your doubts will starve.

Doubt is the father of invention.

Galileo Galilei

Doubt is not necessarily the absence of faith, it can be a critical and necessary step on the path toward faith, however crooked that path might be.  
Doubt isnt the opposite of faith.  It is an element of faith.

We doubt things when we can’t amswer, define or discover. Doubt is a natural human emotion deserving our attention. Confronting doubt leads to growth and strengthened beliefs.  

If we don’t doubt what we hear, if we don’t ask questions and seek answers, its’s hard to believe anything.  Faith is believing things we cannot see or explain.

As long as we seek and explore the answers to our questions, doubt is an act of courage and strength. Ultimately when you explore doubt and questions, faith is strengthened in the end.  

Doubt sees the obstacles.
Faith sees the way.
Doubt sees the darkest night
Fath sees the day.
Doubt dreads to take a step.
Faith soars high.
Doubt questions, Who believes?
Faith answers I

"Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith. It is an element of faith."
That seemed like a foreign concept to me ... but the more I read, it unfolds perfectly. Like Rick used to say, every day's a school day.

Faith is the glue that holds us together in all times.

I miss read this by reading too fast.: feed your faith, your doubts will starve.
I miss read 'STARVE' and had read in "Survive". Now that I think of that it also is true with many. Too many people will never lose their 'doubts'.
I do have faith in this country, WE WILL SURVIVE.....
