Is it just me, or are there days when it’s a bit harder to “feel” God? My friend Megan used to call it the “warm and fuzzies.” This week, I’ve has a hard time “feeling” God. I think there are several reasons, but one being when you watch tragedy strike and people’s homes literally wash away, it’s hard to even know how to begin to balance your faith and emotions. “God, I know you are with me, I know you are good, but this really sucks…”
I’ve been praying for eyes to see and ears to hear, but I’m not really getting much action. But even in the silent times, where my life and faith feels stuck in a rut, I do know God is there—it’s just a bit more of a challenge to see.
So, I’ve tried to carry on…praying, praising, and choosing to believe that God hears me even if I’m not “feeling” it. This morning, I received the first glimmer of Light that my eyes have been focused enough to see clearly:
“Seek Me with your whole being. I do desire to be found by you, and I orchestrate the events of your life with that purpose in mind. When things go well and you are blessed, you can feel Me smiling on you. When you encounter rough patches along your life-journey, trust the My Light is still shining upon you. My reasons for allowing these adversities may be shrouded in mystery, but My continual Presence with you is an absolute promise. Seek Me in good times; seek Me in hard times. You will find Me watching over you all the time.”
