“Even my close friend, someone I trusted, one who shared my bread, has turned against me.
Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.”
Psalm 41:9, 13 NIV
Has someone you called friend effortlessly cast you aside with an unexpected “I thought our friendship had run its course,” or directly throat-punched you with “I don’t ever want to speak to you again!” Protective instinct may incline you to sharply retort in like. Pause. Breathe. Pray. No matter the hurt, no matter the pain, God is still on the throne and deserves our praise. Sacrifice that desire to hurt back at the foot of the cross and leave it for Jesus who endured the unimaginable to redeem you and call you His.🚦
