Maybe no one mentioned
that seasons of doubt,
suffering, and detachment
are regular valleys in a believer’s life.
Those are also the exact times
we go to God and tell Him everything.
To even say, “I don’t feel you right now, God.”
You can tell Him that.
Most of us think we’ve failed God
when we don’t feel Him, when it’s actually
that feeling of His absence that
can either push you to Him or from Him.
He’d much rather it be to Him.

Amen. It’s often those seasons of no feeling where we find our faith grows the most. In those places faith becomes tied to something more solid than our ever changing feelings.
It is when we feel disconnected and filled with doubt that we have our roots going deeper. It is during the dry seasons that we either become bitter or better.

I’m going through a really lonely period right now where I feel I can’t connect to anyone but God. I know He’s going to take me through this and that I would be worse off if I let Him go than if I let Him in. He’s pushing me to be more open with people, more courageous, more vulnerable, and sometimes I end the day with tears because I always feel like I’m not even on the same planet as other people, just on the outside looking in.
I have to tell you, though, that I definitely agree – venting to God *does* help. Go at Him with tears and all your emotions, even the ugly ones. If anyone should be dealing with your ugliness, it should be God. So take some time alone and let it out to God, ask Him to help you sort through all your frustrations, anger, and misery. It is those honest, raw moments that speak to Him the most. You don’t need to put up a happy front for God – He already knows how you really feel. So you nail all your suffering and mistakes to the cross and lay it all down at His feet. He loves you and He wants to help you overcome things. Even if your situation doesn’t necessarily change, your attitude will.
Always remember that God will never turn you away.
This is exactly where I am at right now. I truly needed to hear this. Thank you!
