I Miss God

I was just thinking today how much I miss God. On my way to work today I passed a flashing sign that said:

Romans 11:29
for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

And then when I got to work someone sent me this verse:

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:7, NLT

Funny that out of no where I get those two random verses. I guess he misses me too.

i just search up the internet 'i miss God' and i found your blog. it's nice to feel that there's somebody out there feel the same way as i do.. even its been a while after this entry of yours.
thank you. for nice verses. i really do miss Him in my life.

Lani said...

that's amazing and humbling. Glad that you found some encouragement in those verses. Keep me posted on how your journey goes! I know He's near to us... it's the thrill of the chase!

I was just thinking the same thing. googled "i miss god" and this came up.

great verses. thank you for sharing. maybe just what I needed tonight.

Same here. I Googled miss God also. I have been through pains and cried out to God and he restored my peace, and yet I feel removed from him. Far far from heaven above, a distance unreachable. So still I cry out to Him. And I see others in their pains and I feel for them. It saddens me the more. I then ask God to deliver peace to others. I pray His truth to be true in this world that is far and wide.

it's funny how people have actually googled "I MISS GOD". I wonder why. I mean I did it too. I miss God too but instead of opening up my bible or praying I google it.

thanks for those verses but I think the process of googling "I Miss GOD" has reminded me of something.

Something important, something i don't ever want to forget again. God doesn't go anywhere, it's me that has drifted away.

collegeboy said...

Guess who else has googled "i miss God"

I know it wasn't the best way to find Him, but I just wanted to connect with someone to help me a little..

i use to pray to him in my excitements, and bad times.. now i hesitate half way like, what if he doesn't care.. because I drifted away so far

If you're still around, pray that God change my heart..

Lani said...

Hey everyone, I'm amazed at all the comments I continue to get on this entry from almost 2 years ago! I've posted more recently on this topic of missing God. Check it out for more encouragement. You're not alone.

Anonymous said...

Googled "I miss God" - I miss his house. I miss singing, listening, feeling. I miss the friends I miss the family. I miss standing beside others that are sharing in caring for his children. I do not think I am talking about the same feelings others here have posted.
I look for an ambassador from him, Instead his people (my church family and beloved friends) have treated me as a leper. I can not find what I have done to wrong others. I daily offer myself up to give to the ones whom hurt me I offer love, in spite of the pain they give. I can not feel him there at this time.
I know he loves me dearly. I never forget he is in control. My pain is unbearable my love for others immense. My loss is unbearable. I stand the gap so others are able to live.
My prayers go on day after day, Lord please send me someone to tell me what I must do. Shall I wash in the river seven times. Shall I give away what I have not yet given away.
I look around for signs from my Lord my God. Words of encouragement. Yes I search the word he has put on this earth for us to live by.
He does not show himself. And in my heart I know he is there, he is everywhere and everything.
I know I am walking the test and my Lord my God please help me not to fail you or others.
Help find my way from the valley.

Thank you for your vulnerability in sharing. Please know that my heart shares the burdens of each person who comments here. God, please reveal yourself to us all. Only You know what we need and what we are searching for.

its funny because every night i say "i miss god" , and randomly searched it and u came up, cool I'm not the only one.

I two googled this title “miss God” just wondering what are the similarities that we have, to be going thru this same challenge, I am a 53 year old former pastor, used to have great encounters with the Father, got lost somewhere along the lines and gave up and now been searching for him for months and have yet to feel fulfilled, are we the other five virgins who did not keep their lamps trimmed? … it to late have I gone too far?…can’t seem to find the answers, I feel as if my heart is broken but yet it was my own fault!…

Anonymous said...

I needed those... I typed it in as well, but I know it's not his fault I miss him. I did it to myself... "I will laugh in your calamity...". Sounds harsh, but I understand.

Matt Penrose said...

I suppose I'm like anyone here; why on earth am I googling for answers, rather than reading the bible or actively seeking God's voice? I'm an idiot, and the things I've done lately, I know I am the one who has drifted away. Who is God to abandon anyone, he is always by our side, leading us in this dark world - guiding our hearts into all truth. Will he come back to me as I search in the cold and dark, take my hand and lead me back into all warmth and love again, the paradise of his good heart?

There's a place I like to go when I'm feeling lost, more or less out in the bush. From a tall hill one can spy the surrounding world, stretching magnificently in every direction, a carpet of gum trees fading away into some unseen distance, brushed aside by the long chain of hills.

Here at least, it feels like there is another world, something wondrously high among all nature's forms, under all those towering tree tops below. So often before have I heard God's voice here, such kindness and love in his mouth, his very breath the essence of life (and I suddenly understand what Christ meant when he said "People do not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God".

Sometimes I'd see what seemed like a great cloud of fire, of light stretching away in splendour forever and ever through all the sky... then I'd know what it is to have true joy, the burdens of all that is, suddenly thrown off my shoulders...

SarahLee123 said...

I just googled this too. I'd been feeling so lost in life lately, and I'd been hiding from him. Half-hearted attempts at prayer were cut short due to my stubborness, pride, anger, guilt and deep shame. I felt so undeserving of his grace.

But he is faithful, and he hasn't let me go. I just had a wonderful prayer and meditation time with him, and he picked me up from the deepest pit of loneliness and despair to realizing that he hasn't left me all this time. I was led to John 15:16 "You have not chosen me but I have chosen you"

Every bible verse that I read just seemed to fit me perfectly, and reinforced that he loved me, would never leave nor forsake me, and that nothing created can separate us from the love of Jesus (Romans 8:38-39).

Let's keep encouraging one another. God will never truly leave us, his hand will always find a way to guide us back, even if it is through the internet and google. :)

Anonymous said...

Funny how i too googled "I miss God" nice too know im not alone. Instead of getting on my knees i google, nice.
I guess its just me, i need to look for him.

Lani said...

Thank you to all who continue to be transparent. Someone sent me this verse today, maybe it's for you.

22 And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering.

And I LOVED the verse 2 down:

24 Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.

Sometimes you just have to believe what you don't feel. Take heart in these words. You're not alone... and the community keeps growing.

Missing Him too said...

Funny, I also googled "I miss God." I guess we all need Him to fill that hole. Nice to know I'm definitely not alone.

Deserts of vast eternity have bloomed, O Lord.
You, with your living water
have draped the bright moss
have sweetened the fruit
have called the warm desert waters to the shore
and await me there,
tending the embers
and warming your hands by the fire.

I think God is there waiting for all of us, as He waited on the beach for Peter and the others not long after His resurrection, cooking them a breakfast of honeycomb and fish. We may not feel him right now, on this particular day or night, but He is with us, God with Us, Emmanuel, closer to us than our breath.

Written by Lizzy, who also Googled, "I miss God."

Anonymous said...

me too I googled "I miss God" because as another poster said, I also feel that I was one of the 5 foolish virgins groping in the dark, oil ran out... but if you read psalms and all the minor prophets they all say same thing. David was always saying this! they say because they REMEMBER God , although miserably missing Him now, ..they have HOPE. so maybe that IS the oil.... the lamp means bridegroom is AWAY and you are in the keeping the oil means to keep Him in remembrance even when He is AWAY.
abomination of be desolate... and without God... yet..hold on. God said He returns to people who are in a DARK place...over and over in the Bible like 1,000 times..God said He turns His face away momentarily..but it feels like too much to take! David said why go I about sorrowing all day long! with a fallen countenance and blocked out prayers..watering my bed with tears,David asked why have you removed your holyspirit from me?.psalm 13..same thing Jesus said..why have you forsaken me. It is because we are SEALED and speaking from a place of innocence... that we ask WHY? in a strange parallel our guilt and sins are heaped about us ...and unbelieving enemies...with bigger sins themselves are the ones round about us taunting us..they are not sorry, we are!..all I can say is He will return... even if it feels like not..if you want to hear a song which explains this amazing phenomenon..please go to youtube abd type in "Margaret Becker" "never for nothing"(one with lyrics) it explains this:)!
you may contact me

T said...

Yep... me too... I miss God and googled it... No matter what I cannot find Him as before. I think of the verses in Job: "Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him" Job 23:8-9

I get in the Word, but it is not the same. It is like He is not there. The only thing that has sometimes helped is fasting and THEN praying and getting into the Word - but that even seemed short lived - and then it felt like a work... but I was so desperate.

Jeremiah sort-of spoke to me - the first several chapters, and then Joel chapter 2 also. I think of that other promise from Jeremiah 29:14 (I think) where it says we will find Him when we seek Him with all our hearts. I think too like in Exodus with Israel in Egypt where it says that God heard their groaning and came down. Maybe He is hearing our groanings that we miss Him.

Meanwhile, a book that has helped me is called PURSUIT OF GOD by A.W. Tozer. Maybe it would help some others as well.

I also pray for the man of God pastor (comment from December 27, 2009). God bless you - .

I think we are all just going through something strange. (I guess take comfort in that we miss Him - how horrible it would be not to even notice he was gone!)

God bless all of you. (I appreciate this site.)

I'm so thankful that this pops up when you google "I Miss God". I wish I had an answer for everyone searching. We all come from our unique journeys... but again, I'm amazed and humbled to be a fellow wanderer. I know it's not aimless. I know it's a pursuit. I continue to wrestle with this Divine Discontent. And I hope you do too. Never give up!

I just googled I miss God and I found your blog. Today I feel that I miss him so much. I could feel him in the air, on the streets, everywhere. I gave my life to God 13 years ago and no matter where I am what I do, how hard my life can be, one thing for sure is that He's always around...

Ohh how I want to just give him BIG BIG BIG HUGS and lotsa smoochies for being such an awesome God, father bestfriend....thank you for posting this

anonymous11 said...

i miss God, i strived for further nearness to him everyday, then became stagnant, sometimes the stagnant state seems just as painful as being astray.. once you experience the elevation of further nearness to Him day after day, the pain of stagnation feels overwhelming.. every moment that passes that isnt for Gods sake is a waiste.. to Him we belong and to Him we return.. i need to be beautiful in His eyes.. everything else fades, He is everlasting.. this life compared to the afterlife is like a drop of water in an ocean.. what we do hear determines what our permanent home will be like.. i want to be in the safety of Gods heaven.. to know that i have passed this worldly test, and have earned His love, and will never be at risk for failure again.. i need Him.

Sonya said...

Oi, why do we all turn to google!?! {lol} But I find it so comforting to know that others go through this as well, especially since I've been battling {what I call} the "great funk" since around this past Christmas. It's especially hard too when you have friends that are taking these great leaps of faith through missions, etc. and growing so much that it makes you feel like a snail. Not that this is a race, but at the same time my own human nature makes me wonder if I've been left behind, and ask 'what did I do to interfere with my relationship to Christ?' I'll be back someday to check in. :)

Its amazing how everyone craves God!I'll be praying for all of you out there missing God. Its a blessing really to miss God to the point of gooling it :) That shows how much we need him. Sometimes I feel like the only reason I turn to him is because I want him to give me things, (worldly things) whether its a job, money e.t.c. But deep down inside it makes me realize how empty life is without him. I am so desperate for his love and i know i have done things knowing that they will affect my walk with Christ but i still do them. I just hate how i miss being worldly sometimes. I am a new believer and it has been a huge struggle adjusting to a new life style and i have to admit its so hard!!! It used to be much easier at first but now i feel like i am losing my passion so please pray!
God bless you all.

Lani said...

Thanks for your comment.

Thought I'd share this...

But Lord, be merciful to us, for we have waited for you. Be our strong arm each day and our salvation in times of trouble.

~ Isaiah 33:2, NLT

I guess having a community of people waiting on God is no new concept. Loved reading these ancient words in my inbox this morning. Helps me feel less alone in my waiting. Hope it does the same for you.

Hang in there with me all of you "God Googlers!" :)

the line of demarcation is becoming more clear..who is who..those who miss Him and those who dont know Him enough to miss Him,.. and rise up against us when we do nothing wrong to them! we are in a state of mourning and missing..not offense! and yet they rise up against psalms.David said it. we must go through this.

i miss God, this sounds like an AA meeting where everyone has to confess their vice. unfortunately my Christian walk is characterized by small mountains and lots of dry valleys. recently i went through i dry spell and stopped reading the word and praying and soon some weakness appeared in my life(as if not fellowshipping was not a weakness itself). yesterday i felt like crying, am male by the way becoz of how good God has been and how faithful he has been. in all my hardships and all my high moment i can say he has been with me, preserving my family and my marriage and i cant give such a great God even 10 mins in my day. finally yesterday i managed to read 2 verses in my bible and i woke up today with a spring in my step becoz HE has been the one i have been missing. when i seek him all else falls in place. i am happy to admit i miss God and today when i opened this blog for the first time i cried i bit but tears of joy. if you miss God it can only be his Spirit drawing you near to him. thank you

Lani said...

Hi, I'm Lani. And I've missed God for about 3 years now. haha... Yes, I recently had a friend remind me that people in the Bible who went through dry seasons were actually in preparation for their next big steps. Sounds good! Just extremely frustrating in the mean time. Keep waiting. Keep longing.

I'm an another who googled 'I miss Gog' and you know what I'm glad I did. There are so many posts here it good to know I'm not alone. However, I also know God has not left me or us we have just misplaced out connection with Him. I'm going to take my mother's advice-fast and pray-and pray also for discernment from the holy Spirit so I can hear/feel God when He is trying to show Himself. I know He's there I think I just have too many things going on to here Him.
Thank you everyone who has posted.

I can't believe how many people just like me have googled 'i miss God'. Its truly astounding - and probably points to some scary truths about our society and where we look for answers.

This verse has been a source of hope for a while:

Lamentations 3:19-26
I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.

20 I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.

21 Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:

22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."


26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD.

Sometimes, it feels like we just have no energy to wait - when everything is convenient and instant, just like Google.
He longs for us, as much as we long for Him.

This is the first time I've EVER blogged. Many people since the beginning of this topic have said that they turned to google instead of seeking God through the Word. I would just like to add encouragement about fellowshipping here as it says in the Word:

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" (Psalm 133:1)

and a letter from Paul about being encouraged by another believer:
"I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints. I pray that the faith you share with us may deepen your understanding of every blessing that belongs to you in Christ. I have had great joy and encouragement because of your love, for the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother." (Philemon 1:7)

I like that there is a place that we can connect as believers and fellowship to encourage our Faith.
I was youtubing scripture and then when I came to this concept of missing God and did not see a video sermon, I searched online for a site reference...and here came this blog site.

My missing God feels very much like a longing for... Seriously, being in the world is challenging when you are not to be "of" the world (John 17:16) I have this sense of belonging somewhere else, and I just can't take the agony of staying here because I want to experience that joy of being with God --even though I have family and friends whom I care dearly for. So I cried today because I crave for God. I really appreciate reading about that waiting period, about me not having the patience (the google generation) to fulfill what God has called us to do in this life. I do think it is an awesome thing for us to seek more and more God's presence and to desire that spirit to surround us so that we don't feel so far from Him. Reading what you all have said is a great inspiration for me that

1) If we were not God's children, we would not even be missing Him! He is calling us~

"My sheep hear my voice"
(John 10:27)

"...Therefore I tell you that no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit."
(1Corinthians 12:3).

Be encouraged that missing God holds Biblical meaning. People who are not called by Him, do not miss Him. I am encouraged in patience and in faith.:)

Blessings Enterprises said...

Thanks for your article and comments. Sometimes I think trying to find God is like trying to find something I haven't lost, but it's never an intellectual pursuit, more of a spiritual longing.

At least for myself, I can only go back to the basics of seeing the Creator in the created, of showing up for a practice of prayer or meditation, etc...regardless of how it feels.

I think this is why so many of the scriptures use examples of God or Jesus being away, going away, etc...the parables speak of it as well, often in the form of "and then the master went away on a long journey," or some variation of that basic concept. The times of missing and longing, "as a deer longs for running waters," have always strengthened spiritual muscles for later times.

thanks again.

Lani said...

To all of you, thank you for sharing a piece of your story. You may not realize that just by sharing your thoughts, you are encouraging the next person who googles "I Miss God". They don't just find me, they find a community. That's simply beautiful.

@Blessings Enterprises. I love the way you said "Finding God is like finding something you never lost." I often tease my husband when he tells me he lost something around the house. We joke that it's not "Lost" it's "Improperly Located." I bet we all feel a bit improperly located in our journey right now. But, we're not lost and neither is He!

@College Freshman. He knows for sure. This song came to mind when I read your post. Maybe you'll find it encouraging. The first lyrics are so comforting, "He's not mad at you. He's not disappointed..." Check it out if you get a chance. You can read the full lyrics and listen to the song on this website: Come As You Are | Pocket Full of Rocks I'll be praying for sure.

i'm still in this missing God journey so im not sure but i thought it might help people here to look up about "Malchut" "virgin daughter if Zion" two "women" (metaphors for Holy city of God where He says he will dwell after forsaking her) I feel these are one and the same woman... Virgin daughter of Zion is in Bible.. and Malchut in the Zohar(Jewish kabbalah).. just elaborated theme of one who feels forsaken..but gets saved in the studying daughter of Zion and Malchut I feel I know what to do... I mean it gives me strength to hold Ezekiel about when God said he had to go far away from His temple. because middle of the week image of jealousy was set up (Tammuz)but Tammuz rose from the dead....also Ezekiel 28? says the one in the middle of the cherubims..rebelled... Hiram? builder of temple? freemason belief. (king of Tyre=Hiram..freemasons leader)yep its confusing,but God is "away" in anger but said He will return in everlasting mercies for those WAITING for Him.while we are waiting and miserable..others will feel happy thinking they have God,the One we miss! Jesus said "You will weep and lament.but the world will rejoice, but your sorrow will turn into joy"revelations says the antiCrist has power to raise from dead, i dont know who this "hiram" ,or King of Tyre is.. but he messed with the temple!? forgiveness comes though,even for the sinner.God says He prefers mercy to a sacrifice.

Well, unlike everyone else, I Yahoo'd "I miss God", not Googled. :) Anyhoo, I didn't think there would be anything like this out there. I've only been saved for 4 years and things seemed great and I felt like I was becoming closer to the Lord and growing in Him. He even baptized me in the Holy Spirit. However, lately things just seem to be going downhill. I always feel depressed and hopeless. It sounds pathetic, but I just feel these things in my life that have contributed. I try to pray and I have a hard time praying. I also have a hard time feeling the presence of God. WHAT IS GOING ON! What am I doing wrong?? I know I sin and constantly pray for forgiveness and repent. I pray that God delivers me from temptation and sin. I PRAY THAT GOD WOULD JUST REVEAL HIMSELF TO ME!! I WANT ENCOUNTER, OVER ENCOUNTER, OVER ENCOUNTER with MY FATHER and SAVIOR!

some other cat said...

i haven't prayed for days. i haven't been in that unceasing attitude of prayer in years. will His faithfulness save me from my own unfaithfulness?

some other cat said...

i did it, too. why do we not go straight to the Source.

"oh what peace we often forfeit
oh what needless pain we bear
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer"

well, i'm glad to make everyone's acquaintance. i hope we all are found in Him.

Lani said...

Hey Cat,

Love it when "antique" words have very relevant meaning. Just came across this verse and wonder if maybe He's all ready working on an answer for us all.

I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!

~ Isaiah 65:24, NLT

At any rate... I'm happy to still be missing God. If I didn't... I guess that would really be a problem!

This morning, I woke up to study for a midterm which is coming up in a few hours but couldn't help feeling empty. I kept thinking about why I felt this way. It felt like something more than mere anxiety of a midterm. I kept dwelling on it and at one point, a thought popped into my head... I miss God. I also googled it, and found this blog. This post and its comments have moved me and gave me the rest I needed in my hectic daily schedule. Thank you all very much. God bless each and every one of you! x

Geez. Me too. I miss the Christian God. I still believe in God in a more nebulous undefined way as a sort of power behind the forces of the universe. I still pray. However, I pray without expectation. It's really a form of expressing my hopes and sorrows to myself, though I hope God hears. I think I miss believing that what I did really mattered.

I was missing my ex, and I randomly googled "god I miss you" and this is what i found. I have become so callous toward all things religious since I turned away, but today as I was engrossed in these posts I felt a chip fall off the wall around my heart. And I felt tears on my face.

Almost 2 years ago now, I was at Bible college and i learned to think with my head, I learned to think in an academic, rational, pseudo-scientific manner. And then the concept of God made no sense. I decided that he no longer existed.

I've been completely empty and lost ever since. I still struggle though, with even believing. I can't, even after all the ups and downs of a real friendship with an invisible person. Is he still there? Maybe... Right now I think he is hurting, and I think I feel his pain, for his lost sheep.

Oh how I miss him...

Lani said...

Isn't crazy how we find each other here? I wish I could offer more, an answer or solution for each of your specific needs. But, as a friend reminded me... the answer is simply God. And until we fully realize what that means in our specific situations, I am happy for this to be a perching place for the weary as we continue on the pursuit. You aren't alone. I'm so happy we all have a place to be understood and transparent.

Anonymous said...

I used to hate religion. And God.
Einstein said that insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting different results. Maybe I was crazy but I honestly thought that doing what I was doing was making me happy yet after a while, I felt impoverished by an unsettling feeling of emptiness which I couldn't rid of despite everything I had. There was this desire to make it go away but I didn’t know how.

So I left and I found myself in the footsteps of Paul, walking on the road to Damascus. Then one day while travelling, I heard the athaan (the muslim call to prayer) and was so shocked by its beauty, I began to investigate.

I came across the verse (in chapter 94) of the Quran that says: “surely every hardship is followed by ease.”

And it comes, trust me it comes. When you want to build a relationship with Allah, He is there, it’s us that’s’ left Him and that’s why we feel like crap, because we’re ignoring our purpose. The pain is there to let us know (like when someone has a cold/flu/disease) that we’re not functioning properly. Advil will only cover it up- we need a cure.

Even though I've been criticized, mocked, hated for being a muslim, I'm happy. When I found Islam, it spoke to a natural disposition within me, took the seal off my heart and the rot from my core. It made me a better person; it made me a better Christian.

If it is ok that I respond, this link is for the one who posted a comment about Einstein, and seeming to be in a combination of muslim and Christian pursuits (?), while searchng for truth. I hope the link below shows.

Hopefully, soon, we will all be togther again in Heaven, and there will be no more "missing" - just LOVE!

I feel horrible for missing God in a time where im nervous and im in pain. I wish I could think of him when im happy. I feel like a horrible person. I dont deserve any goodt to come my way.

I can't believe we all googled I miss God.
I can only echo what so many of you have already written - particularly the ones who learned to "be rational" and found no place left for God in their lives.
But my life has really been unmoored and bereft since I stopped praying, turning to God, and having a community of people who believe. If you aren't engaged in at least trying to reflect a greater love and goodness than yourself, then it's so easy to make yourself the center of the universe. Without any shield from evil other than our flimsy intellectualism.
I really miss God. I really wish I knew how to find my belief again.

Here, there's a part in there that talks about him missing God just like yourself and what his grandma says to him. It's interesting lol

I miss god so much. Just felt like googling it. I find myself with so many doubts. I loved believing in god and jesus....and feeling loved...but unwillingly my doubts keep growing...and i feel that it is destroying my faith.. I feel like i am so far from jesus that someone who i truly care for and love has died... I dont know where to start... what to do... how to believe but please pray for me. This is making me feel worthless...
Merry christmas!!

Lani said...

Merry Christmas to you and all of us still searching. So nice to have reminders of Jesus at nearly every turn during the holidays. Who knows? Maybe someone will get a Christmas miracle and find What they've been looking for.

To the one feeling worthless... no matter the distance, that is the complete opposite of God's heart toward you. He sees the best in you. You are worth everything.

If you come back and have a minute... listen to this song through the link below.

I have been going through much of the same for awhile now. I didn't google "Imiss God", but I googled " why do I feel like The Lord has left me" and I found your blog. I have never blogged before, not that I am aware of...:). I am praying and seeking God everyday, but I still come away empty. I can't seem to get away from fear. A scared feeling that I am one of those people that God say's " will wax cold" in the end times due to hard times and problems in their lives, which I am going through big time. I pray constantly that The Lord will remove this fear. I know that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, peace and a sound mind. Still, I have this hard knot of fear in my middle, under my heart and it hurts physically as well as spiritually. I pray fervantly for The Lord to remove it as I know that fear is sin. I struggle to trust Him...I do trust Him, where else would I go??? I love Him and I want to love Him more...does this sound nuts? I have been a believer for over 30 years. I am glad that I found this blog and I pray for every one of you, that The Lord God will, by His Holy Spirit..allow us all to find Him. I know deep down inside, and The Word tells us that He will never leave us or forsake us. This is His Word so it is truth. I have not "felt" His Peace or Joy in a very long time, although I am seeking Him, but I will stand on His Word and believe it.

Lani said...

Hi Carol, thanks for sharing. You don't sound nuts... you sound like you are continuing to wait expectantly. Frustrating at times huh? I join you in praying that the fear is taken away. I don't have that exact struggle, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that there is something in the back of my mind that creeps in from time to time. For now, I only know to keep putting one foot in front of the other in my journey. Here's to the next step.

Carol said...

Lani, Amen!! I will continue to pray for you and all of the brothers and sisters who post here. I thought, at one time and at times the thought keeps popping into my mind that this, which I am going through is the enemy...some kind of an oppression, but I read somewhere that the enemy uses oppression to make us turn from God. The very opposite is happening in me. I don't blame God for what is going on....I feel that it is something in me...not that the enemy will not use things to mess us up...look at the book of Job...and The Lord allowed it. So, if this is some kind of a test....OK, but I pray I pass it real soon....I just wnat my or should I say His wonderful peace that passes all understanding back. I miss it so much. I pray daily, sometimes I find myself praying most of the time during the day. I praise God even when I don't "feel" like it. I wonder how long this will go on...I pray not forever. God Bless You and all of my brothers and sisters who are "going through" trials and tribulation. Hang in there and never never give up. That is exactly what the enemy wants us to do...Love You,Carol

desolation= emptiness,without G-d
is this the abomination of desolation (standing where it ought not,let reader understand) that cuased shechinah (spirit) to LEAVE the temple home and go into exile? because of a false image... Yeshua (Jesus) said NOT to go back into the house to get anything... stay out. must be meant to be desolate
says in book of Daniel 'desolations are determined" and that which is decreed is poured out upon the desolate. many will be tried ,fall back and made white.
I hate to say it, and its new to me, but at least so people can differentiate.. look up 'paul false apostle" on youtube. it may help!?

I miss God.. I miss the way i felt His love. I do ministry for Him.. but off late it's been hard. I met someone in life, and everything collapsed. Their entry only broke my life into a zillion pieces. I am strength-less to overlook the pain and continue worshiping God because.. I have to marry that person. It seems like that's where my life is trapped forever. That's where God has planned to place me. No matter how much I've tried to get out..desperately.. it won't work. It's heartbreaking that I'm going to enter a wedding I NEVER EVER wanted in all my life.. but where i will have to be for the rest of my life. I wish i could speak to God and He would speak back. But He is so silent.. It's been ages since i felt that He loved me. I only feel let down. Only feel depressed. So many questions in my head.. I'm confused all the time. I cannot even escape this torment. I pray no one ever undergoes this horrible thing in their lives. I safeguarded myself and shielded myself with the word of God at every stage in life.. everyday i died to please Him. I did everything beyond peer pressure. I lost so much for His Kingdom and i was HAPPY losing it. But what i have to lose today is just very painful. I trusted God He would at least bless me with a good wedding in my life. I am so young and my life is already ruined. Will He ever be able to compensate what i am losing today just because I'm doing His will?! Will i ever be healed?! I cannot change a thing.. and that itself is such a failure, isn't it?! I search for Him among all this.. I battle every second against wounds.


Lani said...

For the bride-to-be.. It sounds like you are entering a major life choice without peace. While I don't know your situation, I am praying that God will give you wisdom and direct you clearly. Praying for someone close to you who can speak into this situation. Praying for your future and hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Ben said...

hatever the reason for us all typing in i miss God. The one thing it shows is that we do love Him. Patience is the key. One virtue that needs to be learnt with knowing our Lord and Saviour. So when we aren't charging ahead like we would like too. It is easy to become disheartened and feel He is no longer there. I know my biggest fear is losing my relationship with my God and King. But I believe these things come in seasons and are used by God to form a better character in us that will endure forever. Don't give up my fellow brothers and sisters. I love you all and I know that God does too!

unbelievable how many of us feel the same way and have done the same thing in googling this phrase. i want to thank the poster of this blog because the comment reel shows us that he is right here with all of us missing him. to not feel alone is one of the best gifts i think any of could receive and probably the motivation for most of missing him, it was for me. i hope this message reaches someone. we are loved. the feeling may get lost, but i believe he is still here as evidenced by the faith in these messages.

It isn't that I miss God. Though I do.
It is that I am so blinded by distractions that I can't see Him. So I came out of my leaf and went out to see Him.
He created the world. I know He will use everyone and everything to speak to me.
I simply wanted a quick way of reaching that connection so I googled Him.
It is so great knowing that I am not the only one that misses being with Him, hearing Him, feeling Him.
Father lets us wander off on our own knowing we need that, it's amazing that He waits patiently and lovingly for us to come back to Him.
I love how the movie "V (vindicated)" says it. God is in the rain.
I really belive He is in everything but I am blind, and overwhelmed by the sounds of life, and easily distracted by wants and lusts so I seek Him when I've realized I've wander to far away from Him.
He always responds. Sometimes in little way, often in great big ways. But I'm always amazed at how He does it.
I wish I was a parent like Him... Oh well.

I entered university and my mind and time was suddenly filled with school work, thoughts about future jobs and the such. In all the hustle and bustles of reality... I forgot Him. All my time were used in contemplating the skills that I had to hone for my career, I simply had no time for Him anymore. Then today, I realized how empty I've been feeling as of late and I realized that I was missing something... I was missing Him. Where my heart used to be, there now lay a hole so big that no matter how much mundane earthly pleasure I try to fill it with... it remains an empty chasm that only His light can ever hope to fill.
God I'm so so sorry for kicking you out of my life. )'=

I, too, googled "I miss God". I am so glad to know I'm not the only one. I had a near death experience about 10 years ago, and even though I know that God is always with me, the feeling of God in life is dimmed. Sometimes I feel such a profound loneliness and can't wait to go home. I have a good and happy life, but I often feel like a kid waiting for Christmas to roll around.

Victor said...

I Miss God terribly. I'm a born again believer who had a wonderful relationship with God, but over the years I backslide into a life of sin for many years. I sinned willfully and recklessly and lost him. It hurts that I have lost something so precious. I cry about it.I pray and pray, but feel that his spirit has left me. I want to love him again with all my heart, but I feel that maybe my heart has become too hardened. Life is so empty without the Lord. That's why I Googled "I miss God". I wish I could be forgiven!

Lani said...

Such a strange thing to be find a little glimmer of relief by googling God and realizing you're not alone. I am honored when you openly share your struggle. In a way, I wish this blog didn't exist. I wish we were all at peace. On the other hand, I guess it's true that misery loves company. It may seem odd, but our misery gives me hope for change. Certainly, this distance won't last forever. We still care, we are still waiting and hoping while hurting because of the One we miss. Perseverance is an inspiring thing. Keep on. I will if you will.

oh how I miss him as well. I pray every night, asking him to guide the ones who have chosen a different path.

Please Lord,

help us bring peace to the world by following your commandments,
and give us a sign, so we can keep going,

Lani said...

I'm in a season where I feel a little more unsure of the outcome than I have before. But I still wait along with you all in hope. I have to believe that missing Him is the proof that there's still something there. Still something worth fighting for and looking towards. Otherwise, I would have moved on to my own plan long before now. Sometimes it's hard to keep believing... but I think we should.

I googled, "I miss God" as well. Like many others I had the thought of, why not open your bible, or pray? I haven't read my bible in a while, I still pray nightly though and very occasionally I'll pray in tongues when it is in me. I left the church many years ago. I feel it is not for me, I may be very wrong.

I spoke to a pastor that came through my line at work, he handed me all these booklets, and it bothered me because it is all about scaring someone into Jesus. And, I understand to fear him. But, to love someone out of fear is not right for me. I wonder if the church is corrupted due to the people and if I will ever find a place to fit in.

I am scared to go to church, I am scared to be around so many judgmental, fake people. I am not perfect, or even good, but I am not fake either.

I don't say I am a christian without saying but I do not act like one. Because, I just don't know anymore and I don't want to lead someone else astray.

I love God, I know he's there. I know he's here. Something is keeping me, and I'm confused which isn't from him right? But, I pray and beg and for some reason my human self isn't getting it.

When I feel it to pray in tongues, or really feel God with me sometimes- that is the only thing keeping me going. I just tell myself see, you're still a christian, he still loves you.

My aunt sees things from God, he tells/shows her things. Since I was very young she always said God says you are in his palm.

I keep that in mind, we all should. No matter how you feel, where you are, seek you will find. If you don't feel him, don't give up. The palm is not close to the heart, a hand out stretched is in mid air. It may sound strange, but sometimes I think we are meant to be in the palm of his hand and carried through things, than just only in his heart feeling love. Sometimes we know his love through his actions, not just feelings.

Maybe when we are done being carried in his hands, we will not only feel his love, but we will love him more. Maybe it is that simple. It is never about him learning, it is about us learning. Loving with faith, right? Waiting through the dry times. Everything is for a reason.

May you all be blessed, I prayed for everyone who posted here, brought tears to my eyes. Such a hard place to be, sure glad I am not alone.

I haven't opened a bible in a while, but while typing that I got Ephesians 3:14- so i googled it, here is the verse.

For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

In love,

I too, like most of you, googled "I miss God." It's just way easier to google it, than to pray. It's way easier to sympathize with others, than it is to humble my heart before God. I'm a pastor, and I've been ignoring God for a week.

to every single one of you searching for God, I have an answer that can help you. First get by yourself. Then acnowledge the fact that you miss Him, or long for an encounter with Him. Then just begin to worship Him. Tell Him how much you love Him. Tell Him you appreciate His presence. Feeling shy/nervous and need some inspiration? go to this is a free online musical prayer room that never shuts down. It's available whenever you are. It has helped me a lot in this area, and I feel a lot closer to God now.

I posted the September 8 2009 comment. Two years later and I still kind of miss God. I mean I've gotten close to him a couple of times but I still drift. It bothers me.

Reading what I wrote I was reminded of what I forgot.

I'm gonna go look in the mirror now and remind myself not to drift away.

I'll let you all know how it goes. Let's let each other know how it goes as well. And let's pray for each other. I pray you all get close to God again and never miss him again.

I miss God very much in my life. Sometimes there's the feeling that I forgot something...or Someone. I have so much to be thankful for. I especially think so when I turn on the news and all that's being reported is death, dying, and debt. These are the times when we all need God the most, and we have to remember not to just miss Him when we need Him, but to keep His name on our lips so He is never far away.

You know that feeling when you walk into a room and for every effort you can't remember why you came in? That is how I was feeling about nothing last night when it stuck me that "I miss god". I know he is there and that relationship is perfect in one direction for sure, but I forgot to love him. It sets heavy in your stomach like leaving for a trip and knowing that you left something. God I miss you and want you and need you, help me remember to love you and help my unbelief.

Lately I have been looking back at my life and I found that everything about me a year or two ago screamed that I loved God. Now I do not even see him in my life, which is completely my own fault for putting things before him. I have come to relize how much I miss him and that I really want the relationship that I had with God back. Feeling lost I searched "I miss God" and to my surprise I found this.

The Bible is full of God's promises that He is our Redeemer and Friend. At times, I miss God, too. It is usually because I have not spent time with Him the way that I need, too. For all those who are missing God, I have a song for you. It is called, "I Miss My Time with You."
God misses us, too. If you think God has given up on you, listen to "He's Got all the Time in the World."

(Copy and paste links into the web browser)

Also know that God is a God of forgiveness, no matter what you have done. We simply have to confess our sins:

1 John 1:9

He has also promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you.

I, too, have had a rough go of it lately, but I know that God is still with me through the presence of the Holy Spirit, through the love He gives no matter what is going on in my life, and through the confirmation of His will in my life.

God punishes no one. What we feel is punishment is often the consequences of our choices. Even then, God is merciful,faithful, and does not leave us because we have sinned.

The following is one of my favorite verses about how God feels about us, His creation:

Isaiah 43: 1-5

<< Isaiah 43 >>
King James Version
1But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
2When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

3For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

4Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.

5Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;

If you need a new start:
2 Corinthians 5:17
17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new

If you need direction:
Isaiah 30: 21

21And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

May you find peace in Him.

i miss God in the ways i have known him in the past. i wonder sometimes if it's because i'm approaching middle age. i miss living in communities that seek him together, where it is the norm. i was so lucky to live in so many communities where we lived with our hearts open, was like heaven on earth. i hate the struggle and pain of my current community, but i know that i am called to remain with withdraw from the fretting, political striving, and endless activity but to remain present, prayerful and vulnerable. to do it, i need heart full of God. but i feel completely alone.

Unknown said...

I totally understand and have been in the precise same boat. I do not think it has anything to do with you approaching middle age. I just think something is going on we dont quite understand, but I think it will change after the election (I just feel all the strange sense of God's absence is linked - among other things). All I get from God is "remain faithful" and "trust" and keep seeking - though I feel alone, and terribly miss the days of what seemed, as you put it, "heaven on earth". Blessings to you.

I can't help but be humbled and happy that you all find a moment to breathe while reading this. I wish I had an easy, fix it answer for myself and for you. All I know is there is something so very good and special about God that keeps us missing Him. I'm ok to be discontent in that.

Wow, I also got to this site after googling "I miss God." It's the first one on the search results! I read your original post, and browsed a few of the comments here. Very heart-warming. I am a believer but have been struggling with my faith for almost 2 years now. I know we are not supposed to always experience what's called spiritual "consolations," that most (if not all) the saints go through "aridity," doubt, or both. But I sure would like to be able to bask in His light again... even if just for a little while. I have been groaning in my heart lately how He seems distant and silent... not just to me but to the world. I hope He forgives my puerile thinking... I know He loves us and is not silent (funny, this reminds me of the book title: He is There And He is Not Silent.) Oh but I do miss Him!

And here I am, another anonymous person googling the same words, "I miss God." Not sure what I was looking for, maybe a way to reconnect, a way to get back to better times, a life closer to God.

does the sadness we are all feeling feel like the mourning for a firstborn son? bible says whole world will mourn as for a firstborn son. jeremiah tells daughter zion you trusted in falsehood, all your prophets and priests were liars. they shed innocent blood in the temple, mourn bitterly as for a firstborn son. do not stop day and night, do not let him cease. (Lamentations chapter 2&3) it also says "It will seem as though im attacking you, I have become as a cruel enemy, youll understand later" im trying, but I hate it. something feels wrong. and dishonest and like pretentious. I am scared of the seriousness of spiritual warfare.

I also googled "I miss God" - because i do. I feel more honest now - more 'me' - but i miss that comfort and security and compassion (which now i know is self-compassion, that i now seek). This was a beautiful, simple post, Lani. Thank you for its simplicity and its power.

Hi All

I am at work right now and I suddenly miss God. This is very inspiring.. I too had been involved in the church ministry when I was still single and young... I feel like like , I just had Him so near in my heart , so closed... but as things tossed apart , I let Him Go... This morning, I just told God that I miss Him sooo much... and I knew in my heart that He has a purpose in me and that purpose is still there... i know that he has a reason for everything... and from where I am right now - I know that God will find a way... I will do my best to go back in His will.. Eversince as a child ,Goa has already impressed in my life that He calls me in a ministry and this is my heart desire until now - it never really changed since then.and if the right time comes, I won't let Him go anymore... I pray God will revealed His purpose to all of us here...

Anonymous said... Here we read about the health benefits of reduced calories to overweight individuals, not just people who are within the desirable weight range. Again, let's remember this doesn't mean fried foods and cupcakes Don't shoot me cupcake lovers! So how does this work? When we don't eat the high carb items on the menu we aren't making those deposits into our bank to create more glucose. Remember, the body needs glucose for energy. So where does it go? It goes to the vault and makes withdrawals from the fatty tissue stored there. Our body burns the fat in the absence of fresh intake of high carb foods! You see, our body looks first to the food we eat. If it doesn't find the insulin it requires there it goes to the bank and makes the withdrawal. The effect is the fat is burned for energy and ketones are the by product of the process. Put simply, we lose fat! And we didn't go hungry at all! [url=]green coffee bean extract for weight loss[/url] Alternating your daily caloric intake will keep your metabolism stimulated due to a process called Homeostasis. Homeostasis maintains a constant internal environment and ensures that all cells in the body are in an environment that continues to meet their needs and allows them to function normally regardless of any external changes. If you drop your caloric intake, your body will attempt to slow down your metabolism. By alternating your caloric intake it's possible to prevent this process. It is common for people to alternate their caloric intake daily. One day you may consume 2,000 calories the next day 1,800 and on day three, 2,200 calories. Others rotate caloric intake by the week in order to keep their metabolism charged.

Wow...It's pretty amazing that this blog was posted for the first time over 6 years ago, and I'm finding it today, and God has used it to bring joy back to my life!

I want to encourage each of you that have commented on this post, or who have read it, and didn't comment. God misses much! The heartache you feel over not "feeling" him, it only a small amount compared to how much his heart aches for you.

Up until about an hour ago when I first stumbled on this blog, I was in your boat. I've been missing God for a while. I forgot about him in the midst of some pain, and slowly started drifting away from him. He never left me, but I was searching so many places and things for him, when he was waiting for me the whole time.

God does not leave us, nor does he ignore us, or enjoy us feeling "lost." I realized I was looking for him in the wrong places (Others mostly).

There's no magic formula, and what works for one, won't for another, but just know that God DOES love you, and he DOES hear you, so keep talking to him.

Lord, I pray for all my brothers and sisters that have stumbled on this blog, as well as the author. Lord, I know how heartbreaking it is to feel alone, and to feel like you, our father, have left us. Lord, I pray that you gently nudge them back to you. Help them see that you have not left, or disappeared, and help them find their way back into your loving embrace. Amen
