by Silas Henderson. It seems natural to turn to God when experiencing difficulties. However, when in the midst of these trials ?divorce, job loss, illness, family conflicts? God can seem far away. Author Silas Henderson offers sensitive, practical guidance to those worried about the lack of God’s presence in their lives. He writes, if we didn’t believe in God’s sustaining love and power to act in our lives, we wouldn’t be questioning why God did or did not act in this instance or experience.
