My faith stood firm, but the feelings of His undeniable presence were gone.Step by step, I had been inching my way back into the arms of God while trying hard to rekindle the feelings of His nearness."This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 New Living Translation (NLT)God Never MovedOh, I know God never moved; it was me. I stomped my feet and allowed a wall to go up. He didn’t do things the way I had expected nor desired, and I responded in a way which put distance between us.However, never once did I doubt He was near. Never once was my faith in jeopardy. After all, God and I have a relationship built on Trust covered with Faith, Hope, and Love.Are you in a place where you don't feel God's presence?How to Know God Is with You1.
