Have you ever felt abandoned by God? You pray, go to church and read the Bible, but God seems so far away. What’s going on?
What’s happening, says Daniel Schrock, is the “dark night.”
“This is something that Christians rarely talk about, but which many experience,” says Schrock, author of Dark Night: A Gift of God (Herald Press). It’s not a punishment, he adds. “It’s one of the ways God changes us so that we can more closely resemble the person God wants us to be.”
