Dealing with Doubt

“Are you the One who is to come, or should we expect someone else” Matthew 11:3 I think doubt is a part of the human condition. As a leader I am sometimes plagued by it more than I like to admit. I rethink decisions, worry about the results of those decisions, wonder if I could have done things differently, and worry about people’s thoughts on those decisions. Doubt is a killer of any internal rest that’s for sure. \
