I’ve been in a spiritual malaise for about five months now. It’s like a malignant tumor with many tenacles reaching out into my soul. There are so many issues that are sucking the life out of me: Family concerns, growing older, ministry to an older congregation on the cusp of dying, my relationship with God … I could go on.
I’m so tired. For the last four months I couldn’t shed a tear. Now it seems I can’t stop crying. I feel so alone.
