Here are some scriptures to keep in mind as you go through your Dark Night of the Soul:

  • “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
  • “For we live by believing and not by seeing.(2 Cor. 5:7)
  • “But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him.
    (1 John 4:8-9)
  • “But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
  • Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
     (Hebrews 13:5)
  • Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God–truly righteous and holy. (Ephesians 4:22-24)
  • Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. (Romans 12:2)
  • Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24)

  • Great read, and wonderful verses as one traverses this wonderful yet trying spiritual journey. I’m a big fan of St John of the Cross, St Ignatius , St Teresa of Avila, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, etc…I believe they still have much to teach us as we confront our own sin, which allows God to draw closer to us. Blessings to you and yours in Jesus name.

    • Thanks for the kudos on the post. Even though I’m not Catholic, I find it interesting to look into the saints as well. Who is your favorite saint? Why do they stick out more than others to you?

    After considering what you’ve written and waiting upon the Lord, what you define as The Dark Night of the Soul I think is just spiritual immaturity. Because I believe that there is a depth in Christ that one cannot navigate without the grace and mercy of God.
    The true Dark Night of the Soul is what Christ experienced at Gethsemane and most of us in the West no nothing about that degree of suffering.

    • The 7 facets are what’s called the Dark Night of the Senses. You’re right, It’s generally taken as Spiritual immaturity. When one gets through that, they can be taken into the Dark Night of the Soul, and its purpose is to let go of the things of this world, and to pursue the simple delight in God. We can then apply faith in God to pursue Him no matter what trials and persecutions we face in the DNOTS.

      Remember, the apostles were flogged and they left rejoicing (Acts 5:41), and that Jesus endured the cross for the joy set before Him. It takes a vision to get through it, and apply faith in God (What I call Faith Triggers), and pursue Him no matter what. It doesn’t mean it’s all joyful emotions, there is real pain, but out of our simple love of God we’ll continue to pursue Him. Sometimes, it takes enduring the Dark Night of the Soul to get people to develop intimacy with Him. You may want to read up on what Saint John wrote about it to get a fuller understanding, because he came up with that phrase, and it’s really about the soul’s longing for the divine union and the purging of everything that’s worldly.

    Very good article. Romans 8:28 All things work together for the good for those who love God. He inhabits the praises of his people Psalms 22:3. Draw nigh unto him and he will draw nigh unto you. James 4:8. When we raise our hands in praise, in our weariness, in our pain, in our loneliness an praise him, we open a place for him do dwell and give us his strength for oue weaknesses.

    • Thanks so much for the additional scriptures, Joe. Yes, those will be helpful when going through the Dark Night of the Soul. It’s so important to remember to simply delight in Him when we praise His Name. We’re not earning favor/grace/mercy/etc, but just simply loving on Him. What has helped you make it through your Dark Nights? Is there anything you’d like to add that may help?
