When God Seems Far Away
Is He really?
I sometimes let my emotions get the best of me. It's not a woman thing; it's a me thing. When more and more negative events and problems occur, I get the feeling they are defensive linemen and I am a tiny quarterback with the coveted football. Everyone pile on! Are you there, God?
Yes, He is.
Times like these, I have to get out of my head, out of my own way, and get real with God. He's not picking on me, He's trying to teach me to depend on Him alone.
Life will let you down. God won't.
Psalm 69:16-17 (KJV) Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies. And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
