Acts 17:27 God is not far from each one of us.
I don’t often read the separate doctrinal texts we get each day from the Moravian Daily Texts but this one spoke to me today. It’s been a difficult week. There are people close to me, family, who are struggling with end of life issues. Others I know have one sort of crisis or another. I have questions to which I don’t know answers. It’s been a tough week.
And sometimes it seems God isn’t very close at all. God is experienced as distant. Silent. Passive. Out to lunch. On vacation. Whatever. I know this isn’t true, but the heart doesn’t always catch up with the mind. Lord reveal yourself to your children who need you desperately. Amen.
