hard times

      In really hard times, everything in you feels like God has disappeared. Sometimes it’s only clear in hindsight that God is more reliable than your feelings.

“Why do You stand far off, O Lord?  Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?” Psalm 10:1

“God is not a deceiver, that he should offer to support us and then, when we lean upon Him, should slip away from us.” St. Augustine
