Most of the time I am firm and confident in my beliefs, yet sometimes I slip into periods where I begin to doubt and lose faith, and doubt more and more. These periods last for sometimes only a few hours, but even up to a week or two. After which I find my "faith" in God and the correctness of Christianity just returns as normal.
This questioning and doubt that enters into my heart upsets me as it makes me feel seperated from God, and the unsureness about Christianity makes me feel further removed from God because I begin to doubt about who He actually is in the first place. What could be causing these problems and what can I do to combat it? I thought it may have been from lack of spiritual material in my life, but I have been reading a lot of spiritua books, listening to a lot of Hymns and reading the Bible and praying more and more each night, but at moments like now I feel my faith wavering, and it feels like it is constantly being drained to the point where I don't know what to believe anymore. I try praying for God to watch over me and to help me see the Light that is in Him, but the doubts and fears still creep into my mind, such as "What if I'm wrong and I go to hell?". So, in summary: What can I do to avoid moments such as this, and what can I do to come out of moments like this once I enter them? Please pray for me all, I really need your prayers right now. Thank you.
