It is a delight to have the opportunity to write for various websites. Here’s an excerpt from a recent post at 5 Minutes for Faith. Won’t you join me for the rest of the article? Great! See you there:)
Soul, do you feel far way from God?
- Do you know the comfort of God’s presence when days are hard or do feel He has left you on your own?
- Do you know the healing of His touch or do you feel brittle with a thousand cracks from wounds that never seem to heal?
For the child of God, He is always constant within. We often forget this, relying on feelings rather than faith. Strong emotions can reveal what we are really believing in the moment. They can uncover the fact that we are not truly relying on Christ as our source for life, value, and security.
Full and complete, God has no need or lack. He doesn’t enter into relationship with us with any ulterior motive or manipulation. Sometimes we think God responds like we do.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.
He is for us with a fierce love. He holds nothing back, not even His Son. Inviting us into His strong embrace with the breath of life, He gives energy to all that we do–simply that we might know Him as our true source of life.
For in Him we live and move and have our being–Acts 17:28.
