Sometimes no matter what trials we face, we hold onto God's promise that he will never leave us nor forsake us. Other times we wobble a bit but reach out and take the Father's hand when things become shaky. The times of greatest struggle come after we've prayed, pleaded, and pursued God with all our strength and we hear nothing.
Are there times in our lives when God does leave us? Is God's silence evidence of his inactivity? What should we do when it seems God is silent? This study will attempt to answer some of these questions.
