Despairing Darkness

A friend is presently going through a Dark Night of the Soul. This dear brother is a godly man whose life has refreshed me time and time again. I can identify with his pain. I've been there! I've wallowed in the slough of despair. I've pounded those ceilings of brass with my prayers and dodged them as they bounced back.

Perhaps you are experiencing one of those deep valleys. As I went through my archives this evening I found the following "post" which I wrote some time ago. I trust that you will sense God's loving embrace as you fall into His everlasting arms. He will carry you through!

A SUGGESTION...Have you ever checked the PILGRIM SCRIBBLINGS archives? With 900 "posts" over the last 21 months, there's likely something that will bless and encourage you. CHECK THEM OUT!

Here's that post:

“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, O Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.” – Psalm 4:8 (KJV)

Perfect Peace

Eternal God, give us Your perfect peace as we face uncertain days (and nights). Give us the assurance that we are firmly ensconced and safely sequestered in Your everlasting arms. In the strong name of Jesus, I pray! AMEN!

  1. Dear David...I have gone through the same despair that you have listed here. The Lord has always been there even though at the time I couldn't see it.
    During the last two times I have gone through depression, Saija has been a real help. She is truly a blessing and I appreciate her so much and I am so thankful that because of you, that I have met her!!...from Terry
