I didn’t see Him with my eyes or hear Him with my ears, but still I knew it was His voice. ”‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Those words was spoke from God to Jeremiah . In many different ways God spoke to His people and He is still speaking to us. He speaks in a different language to each one of us so we can see how awesome He is.

and it seems as though you are so far away.
