There are times when God seems to be distant from us. We might be going through a very painful difficult time and it feels as if we are all alone. Other occassions we might feel as if we are walking in confusion and do not know which way to turn. We have all been there at least once and I felt that this would be a good topic.
There are various reasons why God might seem as if he is silent. At times our actions could be separating us from the closeness and relationship we can habve with God. On the other hand, there are circumstances which are so burdensome that can create the illusion that God has distanced himself and we are all alone in facing the battles.
However, God is not like humans who distance themselves from those who are hurting because he rather not deal with it. Many seem to view God as one who wants to punish and finds joy in this, but things are so much different than that.
