Mid Afternoon Meditation 2-28-17


All who hate me whisper about me,
    imagining the worst.
“He has some fatal disease,” they say.
    “He will never get out of that bed!”
Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely,
    the one who shared my food, has turned against me.

10 Lord, have mercy on me.
    Make me well again, so I can pay them back!
11 I know you are pleased with me,
    for you have not let my enemies triumph over me.
12 You have preserved my life because I am innocent;
    you have brought me into your presence forever. Psalm 41:7-12

Having your enemies hate you is one thing but what is it like when even your supporters turn against you? What emotions does this cause?

      • Yes. Sometimes I have a flashback to something/someone–and I still have the gut response of disbelief, even if most of the anger has worn away…it’s no mystery that a lot of believers become “lone ranger” Christians when their trust gets whacked…oh well, we soldier on, eh? 🙂

        In case you need to hear it today, I derive a lot of comfort from our exchanges in these comment boxes, Pastor J. Thank you for being here.
