I have been a Christian for the last 5 years and have been totally committed to God and all that he is. My daughter, Alana, was born 11 months ago and ever since then I feel very distant from God. I feel like I don't have time to pray or to spend any serious amount of time speaking and listening to God. I have no idea when I last picked up my Bible and read any piece of scripture. I do make an effort to still attend Church, but half an hour in to the service the children leave to go to their classes and I have to take Alana to the creche, so I don't ever get to listen to the sermon.
My health has suffered following my crash/emergency ceasarean section and I am in a lot of pain still. I can't help but wonder why God didn't help me more in that situation.
I have just started back at work, on shifts, full time and I don't know how to make time for God. I so desperately want Him in my life...
Has anyone else experienced this? I would appreciate any advice.
Thanks so much.
