I Doubt It

Do you ever find yourself doubting? Doubting yourself, your abilities, your beliefs?

I think if we’re honest we would all admit the occasional ’bout with doubt’.

One of my favorite “testimonies” of dealing-with-doubt comes from my good friend Scott Troyer who wrote a song about it. I love this song and find myself listening to it a few times each week:


If you want to read the lyrics while listening:

If ever in doubt, if ever in pain,
if ever in love you lose your way,

I’ll be your Northern Star
and your constellation that guides you home.

If ever at night or during the day
you feel your heart giving way.

I’ll be your Northern Star
and your constellation that guides you home.

So, don’t fear the night.
Just look to the skies,
find the brightest stars
and think of my eyes
watching you float on.

If ever it seems like I’m not around
just wait ’til you’re alone and then and there I’m found.

I’ll be your Northern Star
and your constellation that guides you home.

So, don’t fear the night.
Just look to the skies,
find the brightest stars
and think of my eyes
watching you float on.
