Some may know, but I’ve moved across the country to California to follow my dreams. There’s a lot of new things out here and a lot of cool people. It’s not home, but it’ll do.
Since I moved here in January, I’ve been to church twice. TWICE!!
You can count the number of times I’ve missed since I was born on one hand, and now I don’t even set an alarm on Sunday mornings.
Why? I’m not sure. It was so easy at home to go to a church with my friends and praise God in a familiar environment. I had a strong community behind me, ready to catch me when I fell, and now I’m out here in a big city – alone.
Some days I feel weird talking to God, because I feel like I have nothing to say. Some days, I call out to Him, but I feel like I’m just speaking into the air and no one is on the other side listening to me.
I’m sure others have felt this way before, and I probably have before too, but right now it’s a terrible position to be in.
I feel like I’ve lost my best friend.
I feel like I’ve lost my Rock.
I miss hanging and talking with God.
I know that God is here and He listens to everything I say, and loves me dearly. He hasn’t left me, nor has He forsake me, but for some reason the security in my relationship with Him feels shaky.
Pray for me y’all. Pray that I will be able to find Him when I seek Him. Pray that I will find an encouraging group of Christians that I can be a part of.
As always, if you need prayer or want to share your testimony comments or message me!

Yes, God is always with you. That hasn’t changed. What has changed is that you don’t have the closeness of your Church family around you. Perhaps this is a time that you need to develop a closeness to God within your heart, and soon you’ll find a Church family in your area that will be even more nurturing than the one you had before.

Thanks so much for the advice! God bless ☺️
I’ll be praying for you, for sure! I know what that feeling “feels” like. It’s an emptiness I’m not used to either. I have found that it happens when I don’t let go. When I don’t hand my issues over to him. It’s as if he’s silently, patiently waiting on me. Usually the minute I hand it over to him (and open my bible), I can feel his gift of peace come over me.
Take some time to JUST be with Him AND his word. Things will become much more clear to you hon.
God bless you, and you’ve GOT this. Don’t let the devil tell you any differently. 🙏🏼
