When You Feel Like God is Not Listening

Have you ever gone through a time when you felt like God seemed far away and like he was not listening to you?

I’ve been there.

I have sat and reflected on the messes in my life and wondered where God could be found.  The hope of God swooping in and fixing certain problems – which I know he could do – does not always happen.

Positionally, I know that I am not alone and that God is always with me.  But look at David’s words in Psalm 10 verse 1.  David says:

Why, O Lord, do you stand far away?
Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

David not only felt like God was distant but he felt like God was intentionally hiding himself.

Friends, if you have felt this feeling before – it can be intensely painful.

In times of loss, death, divorce and other life struggles even the strongest believer is forced to ask God – where are you in this?

In Psalm 10 – David goes on to write…

In arrogance the wicked hotly pursue the poor;

The Power of Meeting Early in the Morning With God

Are you a Good Morning Girl, a Good Afternoon Girl or a Good Night Girl?

I happen to love late nights.  I get so much done!  Often times I get a boost of energy right when I should be going to bed and I begin tidying up the house or working on a project or reading a good book. But then I pay for it in the morning because I’m tired.

Perhaps it was good, back when I started this ministry with the name “morning” in it – that I could not foresee how difficult it would be to live authentically, as a “Good Morning Girl”!  So for the last 10 years, I’ve been trying to meet with God early in the morning.  It hasn’t always been easy.

But I have learned that there is great power in this precious time with my Lord.  So join me on this video as we discuss: The Power of Meeting Early in the Morning With God based on this week’s reading in Psalm 1-5.

{If you don’t have your Journal yet – it’s available on Amazon for just  $8.09.}

Down through the centuries, believers have turned to the book of Psalms, as their favorite book of the Bible. Do you need encouragement, comfort, guidance, healing, courage or joy?

Then -> Read the book of Psalms!

The depth of emotion expressed by the writers makes this book relatable, encouraging, and comforting. It is a collection of poems, hymns, songs and prayers. They express deep and sincere faith in the midst of trials and tribulations.

The Hebrew word for “psalms” means “to pluck”. This implies that the Psalms were to be accompanied by a stringed instrument. The poetic rhythm and figurative language used, clearly expresses the emotion the writer was feeling.

In the New Testament, believers are instructed to sing psalms:

Ephesians 5:19 says, “address one another in ...
