Anyone here experiencing a real faith in Jesus? I do not mean a head knowledge, but in their heart knowing God as real as the person next to them. I spent 17 years as a Christian only to really encounter God two years ago. Recently my main coping mechanism which I did not realize I had, was taken away. Now I am at a place where I am really void and empty and in all my years of "knowing the Lord" did not realize there was a deep seated void. I had accepted the common undercurrent theme in Christianity that God is close (only a mental construct, not a a real sense of Him) and that He desires for us to do the work on our own. These are not the words that come out of prominent Christian mouths, but is the subtle message. Anyway. I am tired, worn, and in despair. I do not want to debate with anyone, but truly desire to hear from someone who knows what I am talking about here. Thank you.
