-He endures an absence of 3 things;
No peace, no rest, and no quiet
-his life was defined by turmoil

-His theology has been shaken


3 statements to ponder/think about

1. First - there are days that are too dark for the sufferer to see light (don't try to point the light out to them, just come alongside them)

3. third - there are valleys to deep for the anguished to find relief (Dont come up with and answer solution)
