Have ever felt like God is far from you?
Especially, when you need Him most.
I know the feeling; but I have come to realize the truth that He is never far away. Sometimes our circumstances--pleasant or painful, distract us from His presence. Sometimes our relationships with others come between our relationships with Him. Like the woman who lost her coin and searched till she found it (Luke 15:8), we can reclaim what we once had.
Suggestion: Play (and sing) some appropriate lyrics; read your favorite psalm: talk, cry, or sob your desires to Him. He'll show up for you like He showed up for Mary Magdalene when she went looking for Him on resurrection day.
Yes when I have done wrong and I know it I feel thst I am alone until I pray and ask for forgiveness,
Yes, absolutely. People tend to feel that God is far away when they have sinned and feel guilty, and when things are going wrong with their lives. Both of these are, of course, the reason why we need faith. God promises to be with us during the tough times, "Even though I walk the the valley of the shadow of Death, you are with me." Psalm 23:4. At the same time, when Jesus was being crucified, he cried out from the cross, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Even though Jesus was perfect and never sinned, God abandoned Him to death so that none of us would ever be abandoned. Even when we "feel" our worst, God never leaves us.

Do you think we will still be married in Heaven?For those that actually believe in Heaven. Do you believe that you will continue to stay married to your current, or previous spouse? Or do we forget that once we reach Heaven?
