I Miss God - Still.

I can barely believe that it's been three years since my original post titled "I Miss God". It feels so much longer than that now. And if you're missing God too, you know exactly what I mean.

"Hold My Heart" by Tenth Avenue North

How long must I pray, must I pray to you?
How long must I wait, must I wait for you?
How Long til I see Your face, see You shining through?
So many questions without answers, Your promises remain.

I love that he says "waiting is being content with being discontent." Yep, that's me. I miss God - still.

I love that there are people out there who know this feeling as well as myself. I often get caught up in every day life and when I start to get stressed or tired I get all worked up because I can't find him. When I'm happy I know it's because of him and I so often forget that. I think missing God is a mixed blessing. It hurts but at the same time it reminds us how much we love and need him and his love. I get frustrated and restless when I want more from God, whether it be answers or just comfort. But in giving praise, in finding joy in his love and just taking a deep breath and trusting that he will come through for us, I reckon we'll be okay. He hears us, he knows every one of us, every hair on our head. I love the verse "delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." He hears every prayer, every request and if we just let go and trust completely, he shows us love in the most unexpected ways. heh, I am rambling but the point is that it is encouraging to know that people out there miss God as much as I do but I pray that anyone out there who is feeling that way will keep on waiting for that awesome moment when he suddenly shows us just how much he misses and loves us too.
