I feel distant from the LORD. I don’t like it. I have been here before. Typically and more often than not, I feel close to GOD. HE is in the middle, the beginning and the end of my days. However over the last several days, it feels as if I am disconnected. I know it’s a lie. Feelings are not fact. And feeling disconnected is a lie.
Nonetheless, it is distressing. So, what am I to do?
First! I need to rest in the promise that GOD will never forsake me or leave me!
Second! Get real! Tell my FATHER exactly what I am experiencing. Ask for help. Pray!
Third! Worship! Remember and speak grace, strength and the love of the LORD.
Remember GOD surrounds me (even when I don’t “feel” it). I choose to remember the promises of the LORD and speak truth! Get out from under the lies swirling about my brain. My FATHER reassures me: “It is the LORD who goes before you. HE will be with you; HE will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
FATHER, I need YOU! I feel lost.
Child, Look up! I’M all around you. Child, Look up! I have promised never to leave you! Hold onto MY promises. Child, look up! Seek ME, and voila! I am right there!!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
