When you feel far from God, God has not left you.

You’re busy.

You’re overwhelmed.

You feel emotionally absent.

He feels distant.

You feel unbelieving.

You wonder, “Is God really there?”

You want God to speak to you.

Maybe you’ve distanced yourself out of fear, because God might say something radical, or demand a change, or make you uncomfortable.

Knowing God is painful someitmes because transformation is painful.

But there is freedom in the surrender.

The way to feel God is near is to put yourself near God every day, and as much as you can, in every moment. Do it when you feel like it. Do it when you don’t feel like it. Create a rhythm where you show up every day, with faithfulness, and you cannot fail to draw nearer and nearer to God.
