I have long been a follower of God, but i have seemed to stray as other stresses arose. School became the focus of my life, as it is with most students entering college life. To grow closer i had bought my own bible, and have been trying to read it every night. I pray to Him every night, but i feel that he doesn't stand behind me. It always feels as if God is never their. It feels that when i pray, i'm merely talking to my wall, not to God. Why does God seem to leave me when i rely on him most? I know he is still there, i know he exists. When i go to church, when i'm with my family, i feel his presence around me. It's just that when i'm stressed and working for several hours, His presence seems to leave me.

Answer from God through Carley:

"Church and your family provide my presence for you, but when in school and especially stressed, you feel that I have left you.  It is true that I am most easily felt where love abounds.  I am not however in the pages of a book, so when reading any book alone you may not get as much from it as you would in a group discussing its meaning.

I reside in your heart and in the wind as well as in the love you feel for your family, and you can talk to me any way you choose; with strict reverence, in rehearsed prayers or with the casual tone and language you use with a close friend.  I don't hear your words as much as I know your heart when you allow me to.  Read these words and the words I've answered in questions for others and know me.  When you pray to me, don't ask me for things but for help with things.  Ask me for help in your decisions, for focus in your studies, clarity in your relationships, strength to do what your heart seeks and to know the difference between what you want and what others want for you. Ask for my help in anything that comes from love and know that you will have it.  I will never leave you.  You are a precious and beloved child of mine."
