Psalm 56:3

O Most High, when I am afraid, in you I place my trust.

God is always there for you even when it feels otherwise. Feelings of God’s presence are nice but even when you don’t feel that Presence…God is still there. Mother Teresa and many other mystics knew this feeling as the “dark night of the soul.” Even Jesus experienced this “dark night” hanging on the cross when He cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

But God did not abandon Jesus. Resurrection followed Jesus’ bodily death.

God is Love. Love never fails. Death…and all the little deaths we suffer in life…always result in new life. Night turns to day…winter turns to spring. Such Love embraces all of creation. So if you are struggling or in a dark place…know that you are God’s beloved.                          Rest in that knowledge.
