If I could blow peace over you in the same way we blow dandelion seeds into the air, I would.

Sometimes we feel that God has forgotten us, but He hasn't. Our feelings are so fickle. They can be up one day and down the next. But God is a very present help in our time of trouble, whether we "feel" it or not.
God is close to the broken hearted.
Is your heart broken?
Is everything around you, your circumstances, your thoughts, raging in turmoil?
Ask Him to come and show you how much He cares for you. He isn't too busy and He isn't unconcerned. You have a very real enemy who plants doubts and fears in your heart. He constructs events in such a way that you begin to feel convinced that God is too busy for you. But those are lies.
He is infinitely and tenderly concerned about what concerns you.
Take a few minutes today and just lay on your bed or floor and ask Him to reveal lies you have believed and to begin to show you instead what He is saying about you. Your enemy delights when you say you are too tired to try anything else or when you say, "What would be the use of praying?" Exactly. That is what your enemy wants. That is what he is working hard on 24 hours a day.
But God longs to take you by the hand and calm the fierceness of the storm all around you. He will push back the heavy curtain and let you see the bright sunshine that's always been there. You just haven't seen it in awhile.
Dear God, bless whoever is reading this today. And I declare over them that You will reveal your tender love and care for them today no matter how they feel, because You are stronger than any feelings.
