A unique and validating look at the tension you feel between disillusionment and a desire for truth, Searching for Enough helps you see your doubt not as an emotion to fear but as an invitation to be followed.
Do you ever find yourself thinking, I’m not enough, and I’m never going to be. And I know I’m not supposed to say this, but God’s not enough for me either.
Whether or not we attend church, deep down we wonder if the biblical story of faith is really enough for the complexity of the world in which we live. We fill our lives with other things, hoping that maybe the next experience or accomplishment will complete us. Yet with every goal we reach, we still feel discouraged and anxious.
In Searching for Enough, Pastor Tyler Staton draws on ancient and modern insights to introduce us, as if for the first time, to Jesus’ disciple Thomas: history’s most notorious skeptic. Like Thomas, we are caught between two unsatisfying stories: We want to believe in God but can’t reconcile his presence with our circumstances and internal struggles.
But what if there’s a better story than shame? What if there’s redemption so complete that there’s nothing left to hide? What if there is a God who can heal your resentments, fears, and loneliness in such a profound way that you feel whole?
From a place of spiritual companionship and deep authenticity, Tyler shows us that it is not an empty tomb that will change our lives, but the presence of the living God. Whether you are a distant skeptic, an involved doubter, or a busy but bored Christian, Searching for Enough invites you to find enough in a God who offers the only promises that never disappoint.
