Joseph A
Dark Night of the Soul July 13 2005

Need Help if my soul is to see God's light anymore.

For 20 years, I have endured this thing called the Dark Night of the Soul.
I have despaired constantly. 20 years ago, I left my wife and 2 year old daughter for someone else.
I eventually married that person, and we have 3 wonderful children. But since that time, I have lost my way in the world. I grew desperate, and grew away from any other family and friends I had. I did things that I never would have done before. I have no light in my life, even though I do love my wife and children, I cannot find joy in life.
Is God punishing me for leaving my first wife and child? Is there anyway back to the light? I will soon be paying back society for my wrong doings.I will be away from family and home and everything else familiar. I do not know if I can survive this, nor do I know if my family can either. Is God punishing them as well? Are my sins visited on my children? I pray to God for answers, but get none..I do not know where to go any longer. Please help me.
