"Am I a God who is only close at hand?" Says the Lord.
"No, I am far away at the same time."
Remember today that God is both near and far. Sometimes we can sense his presence strongly and we walk in the peace that provides. But sometimes he does not seem near at all. Even then, he is still close. We don't always sense him; sometimes distractions come and pull on our attention. Problems rise like walls that would want to separate us from God. But still, he is near. We can rely on that, even though we may not immediately sense it.
Today we can choose trust in his nearness, even as he enlarges our faith to sense his presence more.
