I want to invite you to be honest with yourself about what’s really going on inside. What is the truth? Do you feel close to God, or does He feel far away? Are prayer and worship exciting, or do they feel dry? So much of our services and our prayer lives are devoted to pretending everything is fine. But when we are honest with God we give Him something solid to work with. Truly, I think, He appreciates honest questions and laments much more than fake praise.
