"Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded." James 4:8 (KJV)

You can feel peace, but peace is not a feeling. You can feel love, but love is not a feeling. You can feel anointed, but the anointing is not a feeling. It just is. The peace of God just is. The love of God just is. His power and anointing on your life just is. When you can't feel it, know that it hasn't gone anywhere. It is there and is always accessible to you through Jesus. Don't get caught up in feelings. Move on to being confident and resting assured that you are who God says you are. Period. He lives in you. Period. When you take feelings out of the equation, you're growing into someone that is truly learning to live by faith, and it is faith that pleases God.

Prayer:  
Father, I receive Your peace and love by faith. It's always available for me to receive at any moment and at any time. I receive strength now and joy now.  Fill me, Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen.


My cousin emailed me this; needed to read it since I'm "feeling" like a failure at life. Lately I've been angry at everyone and everything mostly because I'm angry at myself for not being the sharpest pencil in the box. I also can't feel my faith but I know it is still there because I just can't bring myself to give up either. This is the only thing keeping me alive right now because otherwise I want to stop the world and get off.

I totally know the feeling. I've been mulling through that for the last month.

Projects not done, jobs not panning out, the constant feeling of being behind in life, seeing others on here with the same or greater talent going much further in their art careers.
Starts to wear on you after awhile.

But like you said, I know that my faith is still strong, even if I can't feel it, because I still can't give up. I feel... aggravated and a little set back but far from defeated. Despite what I'm currently going through and what I see, I know that God is still in control of it all and is still enacting His plan in my life. He has given me the desires of my heart for a reason and I only have to do what I know to do and trust in Him for the rest.

Thank you very much for posting this, I really needed to read it too.
I hope you can start feeling better as well.:manhug:
