Many people think that faith is all joy.  Faith is many things, for instance it can involve suffering and this can be scary.  There are many moments in life where we do not know what direction to go and this is when faith is tested.  There is a certain type of darkness in faith and not the darkness that involves sin.  When we feel this darknessand this feeling of abandonment we should send up a prayer of hope,”I put all my trust in You Lord”.  When we do not feel like praying this is when we need to pray the most.  Life is not perfect and we are born with original sin from Adam and Eve.  Pray and pray more and God will console and give you an answer according to His Will.
