By John Pavlovitz
But for those who get it; for those who understand how the dark night of the soul can come and linger, I want to encourage you not to give up.
Even if you’re there in the blackness right now, trust that you will not always be there.
Don’t be fooled by what appears to be hopelessness. That is a mirage.
Don’t let the darkness lie to you. It cannot stay forever.
Yes, joy does indeed come; perhaps not in the morning or not for a while, but it comes just the same.
Until then, breathe and keep going.
