Heh. I find it’s exactly the opposite. The more I seek Him, the more real He becomes. As I become more open to seeing evidence of His working in my life, the more I see – especially as I look backwards and see the turns of events that have brought me to the here-and-now.
It’s often said that, “When God closes a door He opens a window.” I can testify that not only does He open windows, in my case at least, sometimes He tosses you through them. :-) Can you say, “divine defenestration”, boys and girls?
