Feeling Like You’ve Lost Faith?

What do you do when you feel you are losing your faith?

Experiencing adversities that accompany everyday life can often feel as if you are losing your faith. It’s not only a loss of faith in God, but you might also feel a loss of faith in humanity, loved ones, or even in yourself at times.

You may feel like you’ve lost your faith when you are dealing with:
Stress
Depression
Loss
Illness
Uncertainty
Trauma
Betrayal
Fear
Loneliness

Many people have feelings like this, especially when it feels like you have absolutely no control or have seemingly lost control over what is going on in your life and the world around you. Being consumed by all things uncertain (pretty much everything) is the time that faith is needed most but also when it feels like it’s the most difficult to grasp. It sure is easier to have faith when everything is going well but undoubtedly more challenging when they are not.

That is why it is important for us to recognize when we start having these feelings and work towards reestablishing or holding on to our faith, especially during troubling times.
If you feel like you’re losing your faith here’s 6 things you can do.

acknowledge and accept what you feel

pray and meditate

express gratitude

consider counseling

engage in acts of kindness

take a break

Try not to judge or dismiss feelings, but also don’t dwell on them. Reconnect with yourself and your core belief in God. Trust that you will be guided to navigate the challenge.
