Many people experience the love of God only to feel Him withdraw from them.
Jack Spong describes this as a game of hide and seek.
The Bible says to seek God's face. (2 Chronicles 7:14 & Psalm 27:8)
Many people find this baffling.
But there is a reason why this happens.
And that is to kick-start your heart.
God wants us to use our own hearts.
Not just rely on Him all the time.
If we open our hearts and give love to those around us we will find that God is with us.
"everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God; for God is love." 1 John 4: 7b,8 (NRSV)
