3 Things to Remember When God Feels Far Away

3 Things to Remember When God Feels Far Away

Can you remember when Google maps wasn’t a thing and instead a printed map was necessary to find our way to a new destination? While I’m super grateful for the aid of Google, there was this one time when a traditional map would have served me well. I was on my way to pick up my daughter from a friend’s house for the first time, and the app on my phone stopped working. I was literally lost because I hadn’t dropped her off at the house, but rather at another location, so I couldn’t rely on my memory. I also…
