BIBLICAL POINT OF REFERENCE:
"For through the law I died to the law, that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me."
Why is it that we can't seem to find God when we are feeling most broken? We know logically that he is there, watching over us and protecting us, but the connection that we have established with him is hanging by a thread because we can't feel it.
Aren't these the times when we are supposed to lean on him for support? Aren't these the times when we should open ourselves up to his comfort?
Obviously the answer is yes, but why is it so much harder to do when you feel broken inside? It's almost as if we're screaming to God, Why do I not feel you anymore? Why do I not feel your love? The connection is gone….Is it broken?
Connections with people don't break easily; we may say that we aren't friends with someone anymore, or that we don't speak to a particular person anymore, but the impact their relationship had on us is always there. It's there in our memories, feelings, and habits that we still hold in the present. So let me ask you this, my sisters: If connections with people don't break easily, what makes us think that the connection with God breaks at all?
I've thought about it, and honestly, I don't think it does. I don't think the connection with God ever breaks. We may decide that we don't want a relationship with him, but there is still that lingering thread that doesn't get cut off because God is always going to love us. Always. He's committed even when we aren't.
So maybe we don't feel the connection that exists between God and ourselves. Maybe we don't want to feel it, or have sworn that we won't feel it. Either way, it's still there and won't break. It can't, because that's how awesome God is: He loves us so much that he isn't willing to break the connection we can't feel or don't want to feel.
I don't know about you all, but I feel a lot better now - the connection may feel gone, but it isn't broken.
