  1. CS Lewis even says that Christianity is a series of Hills and valleys. and since I go to Southeastern I knwo this, because on a scale of one to ten The Bible is 10 and Cs Lewis is 9.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 on to infinity. I havent had a good devotion in weeks. No worries man. I love you.

  2. It’s a funny phenomenon, because in reality, He can’t get closer or go farther away. He’s equidistant,if you will, and always constant, even though it seems like it’s a tide on the sea shore. When you look back at the times you thought He seemed far, He was actually right there, in ways you couldn’t see. But I know how you feel, props to you for sticking through and doing quiet times. I’ve got a habit now where I’m a brat and sort of tell God ‘I’ve prayed already. you do something. I’m not.’ and go about my business until He works. It worked once, too. Don’t know if i recommend it…But that’s the great thing about God is that he is bigger than us all and knows our needs and isn’t going to leave us high and dry for long. Have you read any stuff by 6 century monks…like the ones who hung out in the Egyptian desert? They have some cool stuff to say about ‘dark’ times and being away from ‘God’ and people and all comforts of life. Hope December is one to remember…um, thought that was clever…Peace and Joy:).
