Aww Frazzle Snacks!!
We couldn't find what you are looking for. Try searching for something else.
We're here to help take great care of you when things start to get tough. Do you need prayer? Maybe you need someone to walk alongside you as you put an end to that habitual sin in your life? Have you lost someone close to you and just need a hug and a listening ear? The Care Team is here for all these needs and more.
In tough times we need people we know - and who know us best - to surround and support us. If you’re looking for those people in your life, check out Southland Groups to learn more about connection and biblical community today!
I’m not a member of Southland. Are any of your programs available to me?
Absolutely!!! Our programs are here to help the community and not just the members of Southland. So consider yourself invited to be a part of any group you see above.
What do I wear to attend services, events, or meetings at Southland?
You’ll find everything from shorts and flip flops to dress shirts and skirts. Come in what is comfortable for you, because it’s not about what you wear.
Why does God seem distant sometimes?
This is a very honest and real question, and one that the exact answer to may be very difficult to discern.
Sometimes God seems distant because we have sinned and our sin places us in a position of distance from God’s presence. Psalm 24:3-4 says “Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.” It also says in Hebrews 12:14 “Without holiness, no one will see the Lord.”
Sometimes God seems distant because we have filled our lives with so many tasks, assignments and responsibilities that we have left no room for God. And as days or weeks go by that are void of Sabbath-rest, of his Word and of prayer, we begin to experience the affects of not prioritizing our relationship with God—namely that we do not feel close with him.
Sometimes God takes us through a desert season. The exact reason for the season in your life may be clear to you (perhaps it is a preparation for something in your future or a purging of something in your past) or it may be confusing to you—but nonetheless it may be from God’s hand.
Sometimes we are in a season of perceived distance from God and there is no apparent reason as to why. During these times I would suggest that you focus more attention on God than you ever have, realizing that the end goal of your relationship with God is not the feelings of closeness that you get from him but the absolute surrender of your life to his glory. Perhaps in the months and years to come God will shed light on why you went through this season where he felt distant.
