When God Seems Far Away

Lately I have not  been sensing God’s presence when I pray or read His word.  I have pondered the reason why but have come up blank.  What else am I to do but keep on putting one step in front of another.   The word says that “we walk by faith not by sight”.  Nevertheless times like these are not easy.

I was reading a book and the author had quoted that famous poem, “Footprints In The Sand” by Carolyn Joyce Cary.  It tells of two sets of footprints in the sand, one the Lord’s and the other the person walking with Him.  Then there was only one set of footprints   The last part of the poem says:

I don’t understand why, when I needed you most,

You would leave me……

The Lord replied,  When you saw only one set of footprints…

That was when I carried you.
