Thursday Thought: Three Lessons from Fear

The other day, I was walking along the beach here. It was a windy day, and the water was crashing relentlessly against the sand. I was just about eating my hair it was blowing into my face so much. Into this weather, I watched a mommy duck lead three little babies charging into the water. They were splashed about mightily, and once or twice a duckling capsized before they righted themselves and made it past the break.

Thursday Thought: When God Feels Far Away
I once had someone ask me: "What do you do when God feels far away?" I wanted nothing more than to give them a straightforward, end-all answer, but I wasn't going to fool myself into thinking that was a possibility.
I wish it was a possibility! There were even things I knew I could say that was definitely true (He's not far away! Just have a little more faith! It will get better, you'll see!) but just like any moment of pain, it wouldn't help to hear those things, no matter how true they are. When we are struggling, we want answers and we want them now.
