Losing My Religion….?

Hello to those of you who still check in. This is random and sort of abrupt, but I have a question.
Does anyone feel like God has gone silent in their lives? I mean, He got me through the worst of the trauma. He was there when I had nobody else. He let me know that life was worth living, with or without Will. He was and is my Saviour and my Redeemer. But, where has He gone? I feel lonely. I feel bereft. I feel as though He doesn’t know how much I need Him. My prayers feel….empty.

I feel like I am losing my connection to God and I don’t know what to do. I pray. I read my scripture. I go to church. But I am somehow…lacking?

Help.

Leigh ❤️

  1. I am this because i have gone through something similar… are you angry at God for things that have transpired? I felt lost and bereft and i realized i was angry at him for my mental disorder. If not that’s great just curious if that may be going on.

  2. Hi Leigh,
    It’s a scary feeling to feel so alone. I have had brief moments of this kind of loneliness. I believe it is Satan at work.
    Our misery is his joy. When I am at my lowest, I go to nature…I take my dog and walk (I’m too old to call what I do a hike). I watch and listen to everything around me. I look up and I look down and I walk backwards to see where I have been. I talk to Him and I listen for his messages for me. Every beautiful thing reminds me of his love for me…the butterflies and dragonflies, the clouds and the rays from the sun, the birds singing and the birds flying, the wild flowers and the creek that is running low remind me that He created ALL of these things and so much more for me. It connects me and brings me closer to Him. It’s what I do. I hope this simple suggestion will help you. I don’t like to hike with other people. I like the solitude that being with just my dog and the canyon that I live by brings to me. Sometimes people are distracting 😕. I know He is aware of you, sweet sister. You have proven yourself to Him. Sometimes we need the distance to appreciate the connection when we feel it again. Much love to you Leigh…I’m praying for your peace of mind…❤️

    1. I love this. Thank you so much. I have felt prayers from so many people and I know that I am moving back towards the feeling of comfort that He brings as I grow closer. ❤️

  3. Leigh,
    When I am at my lowest, I place the blame on Satan. I know our misery is his delight. I try to spend some time in nature. I’m blessed to live by a canyon. I take my dog and we walk and we talk with God. I take notice of every beautiful thing: butterflies and dragonflies, the sunrise and sunset, the breeze, the trees, the sound of the creek, the hawks in the sky…e.v.e.r.y. beautiful thing. I know they were all placed here for us to enjoy and learn from. And I count my blessings. I know that sometimes I have felt far from Him and I can’t put my finger on why. But when I take note of the beauty and the blessings around me, I feel His love…and my life is better. I’ve followed your path for years…our lives have been very similar. I chose to leave my husband…I have watched you with awe as you chose to stay. I believe we each are doing our very best and He is proud of both of us. I hope you feel His love and support soon…very very soon ❤️

    1. I am moving closer…small steps. I know that He loves me and won’t give up on me. It has really shaken me to feel so lost. I will find my way back. I need to give myself some room and some grace. Thank you for sharing your heart. ❤️

  4. I know that feeling, although it has more to do about me being kind of stuck in a difficult situation for many years which wears me down. So I know that God is the most Compassionate, Just, Kind and Loving, the All-Seeing, the All-Hearing, the Ever-Living and so much more. But it is this huge difference in doing the acts with once heart in it and doing them when it has become a kind of chore-like manner because the heart is not in it.

    1. Yes…this. My heart and mind have not been fully engaged. I know it is not Him who is not present…it is me. I have been working hard but need to take a breath and let Him embrace me. So, so difficult for me.

  5. oh he’s watching. He’s listening. He see’s you…. there is so much going on in the world, he may also be feeling overwhelmed (not saying you should be forgot) and I truly believe he hasnt forgot about you. I hope and am just thinking – maybe? Others are needing him more atm. He is maybe thinking you are strong enough to handle whatever your going through but never doubt, he is always there <3… If you need a blogging friend to talk to … I am here 🙂
