In a dream I once had I was betrayed, cheated on by one I loved. I had feelings of hurt, unbelief, anger, hatred, and even murder. How could this happen to me? I had trusted, and loved; and what did I receive? Betrayal! Even many hours after waking, I felt hurt, a sadness only those who have taken the risk of loving can experience.
Lord, wrap me in your arms of love. Restore a peace and security, as the trusting of a small child resting in the compassionate arms of their parent. Oh, precious Savior and friend , You will never leave me or forsake me. (Hebrews13:5b)
You know the hurt of betrayal better than anyone. You have tasted it's bitterness when Judas betrayed You with a kiss, when Your loved disciples fled, when Peter denied ever even knowing You...Yet, You never denied him or Your faith in his divine purpose, to feed Your sheep (John 21: 15-17).
Lord, forgive me for the times I betray Your love and confidence. I realize how deeply I grieve You and Your Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30). I desire to bring You joy and pleasure with my life. (Luke 15:7/ Psalm 149:4)
