Praising God from A to Z - Day 14

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.     Psalm 34:18
God is always near, not just sometimes or when he feels like it. He doesn’t just come around every so often or when we do something he is pleased with. He is ALWAYS near! But I know it doesn’t always feel like that’s true. I went through a season where I wondered if he had actually forgotten about me. I knew that he promised to be near but I was in a place of depression where I did not feel it so I questioned the truth of his nearness for me. You want to know the good news? Even in that time when I did not feel his presence, he was still there. The same is true for you too! Yes, it took me some long hard years to get back to the place where I could feel his presence in my life but just knowing that he did not leave me during that time is a comfort now on the harder days. I can finally look back and see how he was working in me through it all. Take time to thank him today for being near.
