Adding to this frustration are the legions of those on the WWW who seem to have a hot line direct to The Throne. Woman and men, who exude confidence as they communicate via the WWW and any other form of mass communication all the wisdom and answers God has showered upon them. Those icons of the faith who are so well grounded and so close to the hand of God that they never seem to cry out in anguish and question. As I read the poetic words of truth and encouragement gushing from their pens, I am left with the reminder of how far away I have strayed from the holy presence I so desperately need.
During these times of no "Feeling" of God's presence, I return to the vital "Head Knowledge" of who He is. My heart may question, but my head knows the truth. I do not have to "Feel It' for it to be so. I am returning to the basics--to the lessons in The Book--to the promises--He gave us. God is no liar---it is His character to only tell the truth. So--I am holding on to the truth--remembering examples of even great men and women of the Book crying out in question--and knowing He IS a loving God---who is teaching me--because He loves me.
And when I cannot utter a prayer beyond, "Oh, God," I resort back to the prayer He taught us and utter those ancient words to Bless and Honor Him who is worthy of all praise. Even in these moments of His silence--He is speaking loud and clear for all who have ears to hear.
