“The trees in the forest are there whether or not we are near the forest. The stars in the sky are there whether or not our eyes open or closed. The sun is there whether or not the clouds block its shining. The reality of God’s smile has nothing to do with our seeing that smile. God is smiling whether or not we sense that smile.” ~ Roger Palms in his Enjoying the Closeness of God.
If we seek God with all our heart, He will be found of us, whether we sense it all the time or some of the time, or rarely. He is there…all the time!
Psalm 55:12 “For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
