I have been noticing that whenever I have an emotional shipwreck I have not been spending as much time with my Lord as I ought. So God reminds me by giving me tests that with Him I should be able to pass.. Tests that I fail, because I have not been paying attention to Him. Tests that, in order to survive, I need to flee back into His loving, protecting arms. And He takes my upside-down disaster heap of emotions and sends someone to comfort me, and sets my emotions back in place.
Resolve: to stop using God like a vending machine.
