If it feels like God is not a part of your life, because of your struggles, illness, or failure, Michelle Cushatt understands. She wrote about her journey to finding the reassurance that God is with us no matter what in her book Relentless: The Unshakeable Presence of a God Who Never Leaves.
Looking for God’s Presence in our wilderness:
Think of two or three times you lost your way, stuck in between what was and what would one day be. In hindsight, do you see evidence of God’s presence there? (72)
When you have reached the end of yourself:
Life is more than we can handle. And although some days you can I can do little more than collapse onto the floor, there is one who whispers in our ears. He’s not always showy, but He’s always rock solid. (101)
When we are waiting for a sign from God:
What we need is not more proof of Him but more trust in Him. (131)
When God doesn’t feel present:
Jesus’ absence was about to make space for an even greater gift: God’s presence moving closer still. Not merely dwelling with us but dwelling in us. (185)
