Are you Feeling Forgotten by God?

Are you going through difficult circumstances? Where you feel with each breath that God appears to far away from you, where you prayed, but God was seem silent. Where you emotions were getting the best for you and Instead of God’s kindness and love, loneliness and abandonment seemed to take over. In your head you know that is isn’t true, but that’s how you feel. If that is where you are at this moment, know that I am pray that this ministers to your heart.

“Has the Lord rejected me forever? Will he never again be kind to me? Is his unfailing love gone forever? Have his promises permanently failed? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he slammed the door on his compassion?” Psalm 77:7-9

As we read these passages it seems the Psalmist was at the end of his rope, pleading for God’s deliverance from hardship. He expressed his feelings, and asked why God had rejected him. Did God even care? He felt rejected, alone and afraid. Maybe God seems to be a so far away from you and  you’re wondering “why?” and questioning, like the Psalmist, if God has forgotten you.

We all experience these feelings at times,  and there are countless reasons to feel rejected in this broken world – but feeling forgotten by God really hurts. When we have these feelings of being forgotten by God we have two choices. Either turn away from God in anger and frustration. Or we can allow God’s truth like these passages to motivate us to recognize God’s sovereignty … and continue to trust and praise Him even in the midst of our difficulties.

If you feel rejected, it’s time to turn your focus upward instead of inward. Rather than rehearsing all the ways God hasn’t changed your current circumstances, let’s praise Him for the many times He has shown His faithfulness in the past. You can have a little praise pep talk of your own! God is waiting with open ears and outstretched arms, for you are too loved to ever be forgotten.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
