So Hard

October 28, 2013

It’s been a hard three years. The recession. All the crud going on. Sometimes I don’t know what to do. I ask God, and He always says, “Keep on doing what you know is right.” So I go and do that. But it doesn’t seem to do much good. Maybe I should just sit down with the remote and see what’s on TV.

God says he’s with us all the time. Jesus said, “I am with you always.” God said, “Fear not, for I am with you.” Good. Fine. But sometimes it feels like he’s nowhere in the universe to me. Sometimes I think he has deserted me. I get scared, hurt, say terrible things about Him. “You stink. I hate you. Where are you, darnit?” Usually God finally speaks. “I was here all along. You just couldn’t sense me because I hid myself for awhile to see what you would do.” I thought about it. Then I said, “Well, would you please tell my wife that, because she thinks I’ve gone back to being a pagan.”
