What happens when our prayer feels dry? Or we struggle to hear or feel God within our prayer? What is God teaching us in these moments? These are questions I found myself asking frequently within the last two years as I experienced “Quiet Nothingness“.
Quiet nothingness was what my prayer felt like. There were many days I was thankful just to be able to get my mind quiet. When the quiet came, I heard nothing from God. Not only did I feel I could not hear God, I could not feel God in prayer. I found myself agitated and angry at God. More than ever, I needed to hear God’s voice. More than ever, I needed to feel the strong pull of the Holy Spirit towards a direction. There was nothing. (From my newest post at dotMagis blog)
What I know now looking back is “Quiet nothingness is everything” w hen it comes to our relationship with God.
