“Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson recently shared on social media some of her deepest faith struggles, including a time in her life when she felt a division between herself and God.

“I used to hide things from God in my prayer life I mainly did because I was afraid. I was afraid I would fail in that area again,” Robertson wrote. “I thought maybe I was doing me and God both a solid to just not mention it.”

But she said that this only “created division” between her and God.

“The longer this went on the louder my struggle got, and the quieter it seemed like the voice of truth got,” she added.

I used to hide things from God in my prayer life. I mainly did because I was afraid. I was afraid I would fail in that area again. I thought maybe I was doing me and God both a solid to just not mention it. That only created division between myself and my creator. The one that Knit me in my mothers womb. There was something in between us hindering our relationship, because I wouldn’t address the elephant in the room. The things I was holding onto were starting to weigh heavier. The longer this went on the louder my struggle got, and the quieter it seemed like the voice of truth got. It’s crazy how when you run from truth you run into so many lies. I began to justify things and rewrite truth until ultimately I felt as though it wasn’t even something I needed to pray about. wow … can we get so off as humans. Eventually life slapped me in the face and before I could slap back I found myself gently opening the pages of the Bible and seeing all the truth I had run from for so long. As it is said…”you can’t say that God is silent when your bible is closed” you also can’t say He isn’t answering when you never even asked a question, or you wrote His answer for Him. For those of you who may be afraid of God, because you see Him as “judgement” I want to offer you some other names for Him… He is…. the way, the TRUTH, the life, a rock, LOVE, peace, the creator, sovereign, He is strength when we are weak, He IS the beginning and the end. He honestly has used me most in my weakest moments. He has given my pain purpose. He has constantly showed me redemption. So, today if you have made a name for who God is, but never opened the book to see or asked to receive I want to challenge you to do so. Pursue truth today, and you will find peace. Praying for all of you warriors ❤️ run to truth.

Robertson then went on to explain that she snapped out of it when she was literally “slapped” in the face by life.

It was because of those series of moments that she realized that God is the way of the truth and that,”He is strength when we are weak, He IS the beginning and the end. He honestly has used me most in my weakest moments. He has given my pain purpose. He has constantly showed me redemption.”
