During my quiet time this week I was pondering the reasons behind the times when I don’t feel that close to God. I narrowed my own experiences down to three reasons:
- I’m not putting myself into challenging enough situations that force me to rely on God. It’s only once I’m out of my comfort zone that I can no longer place my trust in my own talents and abilities.
- He’s still waiting for me to follow through on the last thing that He asked me to do.
- I spent so much time complaining about the hard situation that I was in that I completely missed the opportunity to see His involvement.
I’ve seen all three of these reasons play out in my own life this past year. What about you?
