How God became Real ??

Has anybody else read this book, I haven’t read all of its entirety. But it talks about different stages of our spiritual journey as a Christian. If I can recall them correctly it is.
Despair
_______
Crisis
Struggle
Surrender
When I read some parts of the Crisis and Struggle sections they resonated exactly what I was going through;
but the books gives you hope it says at the culmination of doubts and struggles you surrender yourself completely to God.
And I feel like I am nearly at the culmination/climax but I feel as if something is hindering me from surrendering completely. I have gone from stages of depression, despair and harrow because of the want to find God. When I first became religious I felt God, but it feels now as if I am in desolation; and it tackles this topic directly in the book. It got to the stage were I didn’t read the Bible, pray or praise, I know this sounds bad but it just felt that harrowing not feeling God when I pray or read the Bible etc.
In the book it says these are the stages before you surrender and feel God. I just want to surrender but I just can’t. I want to submit to Gods will and let him take control. I want him to but I think something is hindering me.
Any help ? I know this is a bit vague and ambigious but just any tips on how to surrender yourself to God. And any thoughts on the book mentioned.

He knows what enters within the earth and what comes forth out of it, what comes down from heaven and what mounts up to it. And He is with you wheresoever ye may be. And Allah sees well all that ye do. (4)”
    and
    “The Unbelievers think that they will not be raised up (for Judgment). Say: “Yea, By my Lord, Ye shall surely be raised up: then shall ye be told (the truth) of all that ye did. And that is easy for Allah.” (7) Believe, therefore, in Allah and His Messenger, and in the Light which we have sent down. And Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do. (8) The Day that He assembles you (all) for a Day of Assembly,- that will be a Day of mutual loss and gain (among you), and those who believe in Allah and work righteousness,- He will remove from them their ills, and He will admit them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein for ever: that will be the Supreme Achievement. (9) ”

  3. I have never read the book but I now throughout a Christians journey there are many times when some people feel this way including me. For me usually it is something in my life that is bugging me and I need to confront/deal with it. Also I find to help me understand whatever is bugging me, if I go to a close Christian friend and just talk it out it helps, also one time all I had to do was open my bible and it opened to a verse that completely helped me figure it out, then I just prayed dealt with it and move forward again.
    Hope this helps a bit 🙂
