Dark Nights

Posted by David DuBois on August 25, 2022
I really think at some time in our life, we all experience dark nights. The times I believe, are the difficulties and trials we experience on the road to heaven.
"Dark Night" can also describe the isolation we feel during times of spiritual testing. We sometimes lie in bed at night, surrounded by darkness, yet really wanting to get to sleep, yet the harder we try, the worse it seems to get because of our worries and questions.
Psalm 17:3 says: You have tried my heart, you have visited me by night, you have tested me, and you will find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
The psalmist, David, made good use of his sleepless nights, crying out to God for relief and answers (Psalm 22:2; 42:8). And he relied on the natural order of things to remind him that “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).

If you are in the midst of your own dark night, use the time wisely. If there are tears, let them water the words you pour out to God, remembering that joy comes in the morning.
"Faith is a plant that can grow in the shade, a grace that can find the way to heaven in a dark night." - WILLIAM GURNALL A
Thank you, Lord, for giving me the opportunity to make the most of a Dark Night.
