- Does God turn his back on us?
- Can a person ask too many times for help with the mundane?
Ask the Author: Question & Response
I have read your book “You Have Chosen To Remember” and did find it inspirational. I sometimes return to it when I feel lost. I know what you say is right, but sometimes I wonder if perhaps I am just not doing something right as I used to know that God was listening but recently this feeling has gone. Do you think that God ever turns his back? Do you think that a person can ask too many times for help with the mundane?

In the story of the prodigal son, a son of a loving father left home, experienced all the world had to offer and lost everything. He was ashamed to return to his father because he thought he had hurt him. Yet when he came home, the father welcomed him with joy because the son himself was his father’s treasure.
God does not turn his back on any of His creations. When we focus on something other than extending our true essence, then that’s where the feeling of disconnection comes from. Our sense of disconnection comes about when we focus on negativity, judgment, self-deprecation, worry and/or self-doubt. When we do so, we are focusing our attention away from God, on inventions of the ego, on illusions that we have taught ourselves are more real than truth. And so you see, that feeling, that questioning, that wondering if God ever turns His back on you, does not come from Him turning His back, it comes from your decision to focus on something other than extending and expressing your true essence.
