Today, I can relate to King David of the Old Testament. He penned these words in Psalm 55,
“It is not an enemy who taunts me- I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me I could have hidden from them. Instead, it is you—my equal, my companion and close friend. What good fellowship we once enjoyed as we walked together to the house of God.”
I find it much more difficult to deal with the rejection of a loved one than anyone else. Now I must turn this pain over to the LORD and grieve my loss, then move forward.
