When You Feel Like God is Far Away

Sometimes, we experience a life-changing situation which makes it very difficult for us to bounce back from. At these moments, we begin to ask questions…
* Where did it go wrong?
* What should I have done that I didn’t?
* Where is the life as I know it?
* Where is God?

You find yourself drowning as the days go by. Depression sets in. You just feel like ending it all.

It seems that God doesn’t listen. He seems to be far away. Is he really listening? You feel that you cannot hear God’s voice. And that he doesn’t hear your cries.

I want you to know that God is not behind your problems or suffering. But he is standing there to lift you out of it.

All you need to do is take a leap of faith and trust in him. God wants to brag about you just like his servant Job in the Bible.

1 Cor 10:13 No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful. He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able. But, with the temptation, he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.

Our Heavenly Father loves you

You are the apple of God’s eyes. Our Heavenly Father loves you too much to neglect you. He wouldn’t give you what you cannot handle. He allows us go through some things so at the end of it, his name is glorified. He tells us in Matthew 28:20 “… I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. “. In Hebrews 7:25 we are reminded that he intercedes on our behalf. He is in prayer for you!

Romans 5:3 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance.

Don’t Give Up

Don’t give up, my dear. Trust in God and believe in yourself. With God on your side, You are stronger than you think. Believe in your heart that God will answer whenever you pray or call on him. Shalom!!!

    • I know exactly how you feel. I have been there too. The only thing that kind of soften my heart is this verse; ” Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in your mother’s body I chose you.
