Sometimes there is no light at the end of the tunnel
"Have faith," people say. But what do you do when you have no more faith left? When your heart is so empty you can feel it? When the tears leave you gasping for air and you don't know if they will ever end? "God is in control," they say. But what if God is nowhere to be found? How do you reconcile haunting pain and uncertain fear with a "loving" Father? Who holds you close when there's no one there? "Don't worry and don't give up hope, you'll see, God will come through," they say. It's easy to hand out cliches like lollipops when you don't know what else to say. But sometimes all you need is a gentle hand reaching out and a word of understanding. Someone to sit in the darkness and cry with you.
