Far Away from God

Have you ever felt far away from God? I do. I have heard it said, “God didn’t move. You did.” I know God hasn’t moved. But I am not sure I have moved either. I am reminded that the faith walk is not about what we see with our human eyes or what we feel with our human emotions. So maybe I am not far away from God at all. Maybe just like He hasn’t moved away, I haven’t either. Maybe I am merely responding to my emotions rather than walking according to what I believe. How do I feel? Far away from God. What do I believe? That is a good question. For a woman who has spent most of her life living according to what she sees and feels, it still is a challenge for me to walk according to what I know. What I know above all else right now is this. I do not want to be far away from God at all. I want to be so close to Him, to know His presence so greatly, that there is no separation at all. And, it is with this thought, that I turn once again to His Word.

Rom 8:35 KJV  “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
