Doubting my Faith (and paleo pancakes)

– For us, as Christians, that was another charge for us, is that when you guys decided to accept Christ as your Savior. I know I’m getting a little
choked up about this. I was just so thankful to
God because I felt like that was one of our charges,
is to introduce you guys. We knew you had to make the decision but to me that was a serious
charge that God gave to us. (upbeat music) – It’s a difficult thing going through a phase of doubt. I’ve gone through a few. I was raised in the church, so much so that I
couldn’t grasp the concept of a two day weekend
until I was in college. Sunday wasn’t part of the weekend. It was a day of worship and community. And I’m grateful for that part of my life. With everything we went through last year, I often found myself questioning God. Waiting for answers to prayers, not realizing that the answer was there. It just wasn’t the one I wanted. Not yet. Hey everyone, it’s me Hallease. And I learned to persevere as always. It’s Saturday morning. Wait, no. It’s Sunday morning, and we are here, trying out Birch Benders
Paleo Pancake and Waffle Mix. Just add water. We are not confident
that this will be good, but we are here to try
it, so Happy Sunday. We’re trying these actually
because my mom got us these for free, and she’s really interested in trying to help us to be gluten-free, since Mr. Hallease is gluten-free, and so she finds all these random brands that we’ve never heard of before that make gluten-free stuff
and we just try em out. So here we go. Now I find my faith is
more personal and quiet, I’ve ceased specificity. When I do pray, the one thing
I’m constantly asking God for is discernment in this life. All right, I’ma flip it. Pretty good. Oh. Okay. So we’re doing an immediate
taste test, apparently, because Mr. Hallease
wants to go into plan B if things aren’t good, so here we go. – It’s not good or bad, you know what I mean when
it’s not good or bad? – It’s like a weird cracker bread thing, yeah, it’s not bad it’s not good its — – That’s almost there. – Cracker bread. – I mean I’m eating them – Yeah. – All right. – I don’t think it’s wrong
to question your faith, after all, how else will
you know you have it? Each time something always brings me back into this truth that I
can’t fully describe. It’s just a feeling. This overwhelming sense of love. But the seasons of doubt do come, and I’ve learned that that’s okay. It is because we suffer, that we’re grateful when times are good. I see my faith as any relationship. At the end of the day, it’s a choice. – Thank you dear Lord for
these gifts that you’re about to receive through
the glorious bounty through Christ our Lord. – Amen Some days the choice will be
effortless, like breathing. And other days, well. You’ll wonder why you’re still in it. I’d be willing to put a
bit of baker’s sugar on it, just to finish off the
presentation of the whole thing. I’m not here to sway you
one way or the other, because who am I to tell you how best to have a relationship with the Almighty. Your walk with God is your
own, and no one else’s. What I will say though, above all things, I pray you find peace. Peace that surpass all understanding. And pancakes. I’ll see you when I see you.
