“Doubt, in its nobler aspect – honest, unwilling, morally earnest doubt, – has been a John the Baptist to prepare the way for His coming.”

– Clyde Van Dyke (from lecture at Yale circa 1895)

What if the darkest night of the soul served as a precursor to the most glorious rising of the sun?

What if your questions were actually leading you somewhere?

What if your uncertainty one day gives way to clarity?

What if your doubts were acting in a similar fashion to the ancient John the Baptist clearing the way for the Lord?

What if, through an ambush of the heart, they declare, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world?”
