Is Faith a Feeling?

I've been hearing today about the Time Magazine article discussing Mother Teresa's "dark night." For decades, she didn't feel God's presence. And yet she continued with the job He had given her. It wasn't a fun job, either. What would make someone stay and be a light to "the least of these, my brothers"? I believe she was closer to her Lord than she knew. People put so much emphasis on feelings. That's probably why those same feelings get hurt so often.

Mother Teresa is model for all of us. Trust God to be Who He says He is, Who He has always been. Feelings can't be trusted: God's Word can.
