What Do You Do When God Feels Distant? - T E Hanna | Of Dust & Kings

St. John of the Cross called it “the dark night of the soul.”

The Benedictine friar Augustine Baker referred to it as “the great desolation.”

The ancient Christian mystics depicted it in a prayer labyrinth, representing the Christian life, which at times would draw near to God and at other times would seem impossibly distant.

It is the experience of spiritual dryness, and it is a common experience for many of us at some point in our Christian life.

So what do we do when we feel disconnected? Where do we find peace when God seems distant?
