When God Seems Gone

At some point in our faith journey there will be a time when God seems hard, distant, and unresponsive. There will be a time when we feel rejected, abandoned, and that our prayers are not answered. There will be a time when it feels like God is absent from our lives. What you do at that crossroads determines everything about your character, maturity, and destiny. God doesn’t want to raise wimpy kids, and he isn’t afraid of leading us through hard times so we can grow. The question is, can you trust a God who doesn’t always make sense? Will you be able to see past the fog of emotions that surround you and have the faith to trust a God who is bigger than than the way you feel? You don’t have to stay where you are. Reject the pain of God’s absence and rejoice in the presence of Jesus in your life!
