A few years back, I went through the hardest part of my spiritual journey so far. I was facing a lot of stressors at once: my parents divorced (again), a son had Baby Bottle Tooth Decay, I had my fourth child, the recession brought us a lot less income, we were living in a moldy rental that we couldn’t afford to get out of, and we were desperately looking for a home to buy because it was way past time. And during this time, God left me. At least that’s how it felt. When I needed Him most and when I fervently sought His Will, He hid Himself. And He remained silent for years.
And this threw me into the greatest emotional and spiritual crisis that I’ve ever been through.
