This I got about faith and we always hear about Faith the size of a mustard seed but I felt this was powerful and had to share.
Sometimes suffering can go on for so long and run so deep, that faith begins to falter. We can be desperate for God’s presence, but in our confusion and fatigue, we don’t know how to find him. We long to hear a word from him, but we’re surrounded by chaos and there’s no quiet place to retreat and listen for his voice. That’s when some of us wear out, give out and give up. We decide, in our despair and anguish, that either God doesn’t care or he isn’t even there at all. Sadly that’s what I decided.” ~ Excerpt from the book
