Our whole being is made to encounter God, to experience union with God.
God gave us our emotions, our feelings, and they are good. They are meant to be part of our encounter with God.
Brothers and sisters, there is nothing wrong with saying, "Lord, I want to encounter you. I want to feel you."
Let's not base our faith on feelings. But, let's welcome the wonderful graces and gifts that God gives us so that we can continue on this wonderful journey with the Lord.
