Do you feel your heart beating right now? Do you feel thousands, if not millions of brain cells firing right now to allow you to read this and be amazed? Do you really actually feel the love for your kids(parents, spouse, etc) right now, the moment before I just mentioned it? Do you feel the Earth spinning 800 miles per hour? Just because you don’t feel these events right now, doesn’t mean they aren’t happening. As Christians, we say that even though we’ve accepted Christ as our savior, are filled with the Holy Spirit, and are in intimate union with God, we still feel alone at times. Maybe we feel alone because our union with God is invisible. Remember that you are connected to Him through Love-bonds that cannot be seen and that nothing, absolutely nothing, can severe. Today, try and meditate on the fact that God is nearer than you think…He is richly present in all your moments. Be aware of His presence…Put your hand on your heart and feel your heartbeat, and say “God is really in my heart…just because I don’t feel it sometimes, He really is always pumping in my life!” This is not an escape from reality; it is in fact turning to the ultimate reality. He is far more real than the world you can see, hear, or touch. Click here to share with the stepping stone community your thoughts on feeling close or distant from God.
At times You feel so far away. Help me Father to open my eyes so that I may find You everywhere. Increase my spiritual radar and IQ. The more aware I am of Your presence in my life, the more secure I feel. I need You Father. Blazing missiles of fear are flying at me day and night…the attacks from the evil one come at me without rest. Build my faith Father so that I may be certain of what I cannot see. I pray in the name of my savior Jesus Christ, and all God’s children said, – Amen!
God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Am I a God at hand, declares the LORD, and not a God far away? Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD.
