Gripped by the Greatness of God

So many people have asked me lately- how am I feeling?  
It's kind of a hard question to answer.  
Some days I feel good, some days I feel terrible, and other days, I start off feeling good and then start to feel bad as the day progresses.
I really don't know why it happens that way and there really isn't a lot I can do about it.
It's very frustrating.

Today was the start of fall Bible studies at church.
I am so glad to be back at church around other ladies and studying the Word of God.
I chose the study, Gripped by the Greatness of God, by James McDonald.
I really feel that this is perfect for me and where I am at right now.  I feel like I need to be gripped by God again.  There are lots of days when I wonder where God is and if He even knows where I am.

I know you might be saying, "whoa, that's pretty drastic to say!"
I don't think it is though.

I think we all go through periods in our life where we haven't been seeking God like we should, and then we start questioning where He is.
I know that it is not Him who has left, but I need to be reminded of His greatness.
That's the problem with our human-ness, we always tend to be more focused on ourselves.

 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you James 4:8a
