We all go through spiritual slumps.
Most of us can describe our walk with God at one time as distant or as a roller coaster ride. We have spiritual mountain top experiences and we have the dry valleys. We know the thrill of victory but we also know the agony of defeat. Have you ever been so down you don’t think you will ever get back up?
You have no energy, no drive and your “want-to” is broken. You feel like God has abandoned you. You feel that God has left you and you will never be able to get out of the hole that you are in.
There is nothing worse than not sensing the presence of God…that divine absence, spiritual loneliness, the feeling when you pray but are not getting through.
We all know to well the spiritual slumps they plague us. When I’m in this funk I have to remind myself over and over. This too will pass!
And it will, this slump will not last. I will not feel this way forever. So hang in there!
This too will pass.
