Dark stretches

“If anyone tells you that the life of prayer

is one uninterrupted experience of being happy with Jesus,

do not follow them.

They are not a safe guide.

Those who follow the Lamb know that there are stretches of darkness

There are strains of loneliness

There are states of perplexity along the way,

and they know that Jesus Himself went that way.”
