No. The Lord never leaves us (Hebrews 13:5). We are the most important of all He has to care for--THE MOST IMPORTANT!
Therefore, when it seems like He's travelled, seek Him.
When He is home, seek Him.
For anyone who seeks, finds. Anyone who shall call upon the Lord, receives an answer.
Seek Him in the morning and at night.
With my soul have I desired Thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early: for when Thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. - Isaiah 26:9, KJV
Seek Him both in peace and in distress.
O God, Thou art my God; early will I seek Thee: my soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh longeth for Thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see Thy power and Thy glory, so as I have seen Thee in the sanctuary. - Psalm 63:1-2, KJV.
Seek Him as you wash, cook, iron, drive, eat etc. Seek Him. All the time.
Because God never takes a break from us, He never travels. Most of the time, we are the ones who wander away, we are the ones that take a break, we are the ones who get weary.
In seeking Him, we become increasingly aware of His presence. The more conscious we are of His abiding presence, the easier it is for us to trust Him and trusting God requires that we take our eyes completely off every other thing and focus them on Him.
Pray. Always. Turn your every word into a prayer. When you're chatting with a friend, instead of magnifying/glorifying the issues you're facing, talk more about how you trust that God will come through. Instead of grumbling, let your murmurings be a prayer. Ask the Lord always to bless you, keep you, energise you; as you encounter any difficulty, tell Him to help--difficulties as minute as your door lock won't open.
Listen, God bless you isn't a cliche. It's a prayer. It's the words that my mouth speak and the heavens have a responsibility to honor it. Speak your prayer, sing it, dance it.
The Word. Read it. Memorise it. Meditate on it. Have you ever considered the relationship between the herdsman and his flocks. He doesn't only lead them to where they can graze, he protects them--from running into an oncoming vehicle, from other people who might want to steal and kill them; he is like a friend to them--spending every waking moment with them and choosing their welfare over his.
Didn't Jesus say He is the Good Shepherd? Psalm 23:1 says, the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want...a provider, a friend, a keeper because I have one in Christ Jesus!
Apostle John says ...and the Word was God (John 1:1). Keep the Word close to you, keep God close to you.
