Draw Me Nearer, Lord

I don’t want to whine to you.  So, without going into a whole lot of detail, we’re dealing with some heart issues in our home.   A dear friend of mine reminds me that we’re mothering in the trenches, and boy oh boy is she right!

But amidst the battles and the skirmishes, I’m feeling farther and farther away from God.  Like my mind can’t be quiet long enough for me to pray a heartfelt prayer much of the time.

I’ve met a lot of fantastic Christians (bloggers and non-bloggers), and their faith is inspiring.  I want what they have.

But I can’t get past this wall in my mind and around my heart.

I love the Lord.  And I profess that Jesus is my Savior.  So why can’t I FEEL Him?  I know that He’s there beside me.  But it feels like He’s miles and miles away.

Have you ever felt this way?  What did you do to overcome it?  I’d love to know!

  3. Oh Steph! I am praying for you. God is here with you and He will guide you to Him.

    Thank you for the follow! I am following you back 🙂

  4. I often feel the same at the moment – like Elijah looking for the rain cloud in the drought. I pray that you'll see your raincloud coming and know that the blessing of rain will come, even if it seems far off.
