I am here. Do not need feeling too much. To ask for a feeling too much is to ask for a sign....
What does it matter what you feel? What matters is what I am, was, and ever shall be to you - A Risen Lord....The feeling that I am with you may depend upon any passing mood of yours - upon a change of circumstances, upon a mere trifle.
I am uninfluenced by circumstances....My Promise given is kept. I am here, one with you in tender loving friendship.
The Grace of Aridity and Other Comedies by Kathleen Norris
In our own lives, too, we all too often deny the grace we’ve been given in barren places. When really bad things happen, we tend to blame God or assume that God has abandoned us. “Where was God when this happened?” This is a normal and probably necessary response But sooner or later, we must learn to deal the cards we’ve been given and look for the grace that is hidden in our loss.
