I love these thoughts! Today I will follow suit. I will trust in the Lord and strive to stay the course. I will not allow doubts to overcome my goals. I will anchor myself to true principles. Give this blog a read. This writer is amazing.
To doubt something is to feel uncertain about it, to lack conviction. The word is also closely associated with fear (Oxford Dictionary).
When new evidence calls an accepted fact into question, reasonable people will begin to doubt what they thought they knew before. This is wise, and is part of the process of learning and growing.
