Devotions from Henri Nouwen’s book, The Inner Voice of Love

There are many times we don’t “feel” God’s love and may instead feel very empty as Henri did. We may try to find our fulfillment in the world with pleasures, distractions, fantasies etc. but this only causes us to leave the true ROCK of our faith on which our spiritual house is built.  We have to trust that the solid place is to say yes to God’s love even when we don’t feel it. In fact we can go to this place over and over again even after every failure. God has promised we will receive the love we have been searching for and He is faithful to His promise. So let us  stop wandering around and looking elsewhere, and just start trusting and receiving!
