Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations.
You’re kidding me, Lord!
An act of betrayal…
Five years ago, I was put in an impossible situation. All those my husband and I had known before this happened to us, disappeared off the scene, never to be seen again. Except for two people.
Some of them were Christians. What happened? My husband got sick. I have been left to care and cope alone with no friends, family or healthcare people. Oh, I’ve TRIED to fight for him. But all to no avail. The only thing I remember from the beginning out of Scripture is this:
1 Peter 4:12
Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
But Lord. I could do with someone to pray with. I could do with some fellowship. I could do with some help!
Five years later, and none of these things have surfaced. Time to dig some more…for instance; is it an act of judgement?
