Patrick Zukeran is a Christian apologist, author and acclaimed speaker. He speaks tenderly about a situation he encountered. He shares, “Jean was walking with the Lord seeking to serve him. One night, her oldest son who was a leader in the church youth group, went out driving and crashed into a telephone pole. He was killed. Going through the pain of loss and struggling through depression, her husband left her.” Jean experienced dark loneliness and despair, the kind that rattles your faith where you wonder if you were ever a believer in the first place. These are times when we’ve felt that God is silent. Why didn’t he answer my prayers? Patrick reminds us, first, we are not alone. Second, even people in the Bible experienced it. King David wrote in Psalm 23:4 God is with you “Even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death.” This is so even when you can’t feel it.
