When you allow yourself to be attentive to God; that is, when you allow yourself to pray; when you cut through all the distractions so that in your heart all things are in their proper places — then your heart can perceive God’s presence and action, and it is clear that He is REAL.
Real in the way that someone or something that you can see or touch right in front of you is real.
Don’t give up on prayer. Seek God. Read His Word, and have a trusted guide to ask questions when needed.
Godspeed my friends!
