You’re Not Far Away from God

You Can’t Return To God

Recently, I spoke with an older woman who said that after following Jesus for 35 years she suddenly felt like he was far away.

Feelings are not trustworthy

It’s easy to feel like you are far away from God. Maybe it’s been a long time since you read your Bible, or perhaps you haven’t attended church in a few months. When that happens, you probably feel disconnected from God.

God does the work

The most important thing to know when it comes to your faith is this: you’re not in charge of it. Yes, that’s what I said. You have much less to do with your spiritual growth than you think.

I’m a writer, radio host, and pastor. I write books and blogs to help people grow in their faith. Opinions are my own. http://philayres.me
