“Even my closest friend whom I trusted, the one who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.”

Psalm 41:9

Betrayal – There’s an App for This, Right?

Dear God

Thank you for reminding me that his actions are his responsibility and that my reaction is my responsibility. Please guide me forward as I close the door. turn around and walk away. Please heal the hurt and the sting of this betrayal. Help me to remember that there are things I can control and things I can accept. And then there are things that will only give me thorny, bleeding feet when I kick them. The door is closed. I trusted and I was wrong to trust. Thank you for this lesson.

Amen
