Stephanie Pavlantos: Lord, Help my Unbelief — 10 Comments

  1. Thank you for sharing your story, Stephanie! I know Matthew is such a blessing to all who know him.

  2. Great thoughts, sister. And your son Matthew is a huge blessing. I’m glad you trust God, love Him, and love Matthew even through trying circumstances. Excellent analogy.

  3. Stephanie, thank you for this beautiful hindsight view of a deep struggle and the faithfulness of God. Seeing His faithfulness in your life injects strength into our faith and hope for our struggles that lie ahead. God bless you for this! ❤️

  4. Beautiful analogy to your son’s diagnosis and this biblical father-son narrative. And the word study for faith and belief by Chaim Bentorah was so helpful. Faith and belief are also parts of our Christian walk we grow in. Isn’t that just like our God? He not only desires we let Him build our belief and faith in Him, but He also provides the help along the way. He lets us cry out too, “Lord, help my unbelief.”

  5. Indeed Ms. Stephanie. Have long believed (catch that did ya), the words of this father didn’t mean he didn’t believe God could heal, or would heal, but that his human mind was stronger than his faith in that moment. For me, it meant help me to have the faith needed to reconcile my human thoughts so they might be made subject to my spiritual faith. If you will, help me to have #FaithGreaterThanFear. Aren’t many of us asking God’s help for that very thing today? God’s blessings ma’am.
