“My Lord and my God.”
Thomas is known for his doubt but perhaps he could also be known for his honesty. He didn’t pretend to believe something he didn’t! He wanted the experience of touch with his own hands- perhaps he was a kinesthetic learner!! How do we learn to trust God? The first step is always honesty with him about where we are at. Then once we have handed over our doubts, maybe we will find that God is standing among us after all. We can feel his presence through others- a hug, a word, a situation. A person who reflects his love, or maybe who reflects ourselves back to us and leads us to prayer and a deeper connection with and understanding of God.
