I get so tired of people assuming that how they feel actually represents the truth of how God works in our lives. The Bible tells us that God loves us, that God is present, that God understands, and that God is intervening even when we are unaware. Just because you or I don't feel good, maybe are even in the pits of despair, doesn't mean that God has stopped loving us or even that God is far off. God is always with us, and His love has never abated!
Romans 8:35-39 says,
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
