What Feels Near?

indexDo not be far from me, because distress is near and there is no one to help. (Psalm 22:11)

Sometimes, distress feels nearer than help. It might not be reality but it might be what we experience. But even when we feel close to distress and isolated from anyone who can or will help, we can ask God to be near. We often ask Him to take our distress away, assuming that will always be His choice or priority if we are close to Him and He is close to us, but that isn’t true. Sometimes, He is near among the distress. We can be close to and surrounded by both at the same time.
