Close your eyes...
Forget the outside world, influences, and everything that might pull you away from really feeling God. Focus on Him and how much He loves you. He's always there, listening and guiding you. Just because there are struggles, it does not mean He's not present. God will never give you a test in which you cannot pass. Just talk to him, surrender yourself to him and let His Spirit fill your soul. Be selfless, listen, and have faith in his love & it is then when you can be one with the Lord..
This is a great link to help strengthen your relationship with God & I agree with every word it says because I myself have experienced something very similar.
