Do You Feel Far Away From God?

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.

–Isaiah 55:9

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 beingActs 17:28.

John 10-10

  1. Ginger, what a wonderful piece. I told a friend, just this morning, that God is for her…even in the midst of the trouble she is walking through…God is for her. This is such an encouraging blog post. Stopping in from Grace & Truth

      I always enjoy visiting your blog. Sometimes we all need the reminder that God IS with us and FOR us. Thanks for stopping by, Leah.

  2. Really thought-provoking. Some people see God as a sadistic selfish power tripping superior being. That’s how they perceive Him maybe because that’s how people in authority (like their earthly fathers) treat them. Our perception changes when we allow Him to become the merciful father that He really is.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. He is for us with a fierce love. I needed to be reminded of that today, Ginger. Thanks so much!!

      Saying a prayer of encouragement for you today, Holly. We all need these reminders at times. Thank you for joining me today.

  4. I appreciate the lesson from His Word you are revealing to us, reminding us that our answer is always waiting In Him. Our feelings are not truthful indicators of His presence, but as deep calls to deep His heart speaks to ours and draws us close. Beautiful words of grace today.

      I love that verse, deep calls to deep. I’m so glad you found encouragement here today. Thanks for stopping by.
