Sometimes God feels distant. He isn’t, but that’s how it feels. He uses these times to help us focus more closely on Him, since the last thing we want is for God to leave us alone. Lent is filled with days like this. My solution. Read. Here is a partial list: Max Lucado – “God Is With You every day” (I found this copy in Hobby Lobby); “The Duck Commander Devotional” – The Duck Dynasty family (I got my copy on line); Sarah Young – “Jesus Calling Morning & Evening” (also Hobby Lobby); William Paul Young – “The Shack” (also a good movie). Interspersed with “The Bible”– I’m reading the book of Daniel and the Gospel of John.
