Here is a link to something about Exward Munch’s painting, “The Scream.” It is EXACTLY how I feel right now!
Without going into too much detail, I sat, yesterday, in the car beside a field, in the greatest darkness I have ever known. Inside, the scream was rising. I did not know what to do, for I felt I woukd be consumed by it. There was no way out. And it is true. There ISN’T a Way Out. The only way is THROUGH it. Yesterday I was in a VERY bad way. Yet I know that this feeling is completely valid. It does not detract from my faith in God. For I believe in a God Who suffered, and Who DOES suffer, WITH us. He too screamed out on the Cross.
And at THAT time, too, darkness covered the earth.
I am in a dark place right now. My suffering feels unbearable. But it is a darkness that glows. With the light of LIFE.
I can explain no better than that.
I hope this painting speaks to you. It does to me.
