The last few days these words have hung heavily on my heart.
"My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" Matthew 27:46 & Mark 15:34. Apparently, this is the only phrase that appears in more than one Gospel and they are referred to as the "Word of Abandonment". It is striking that those words were spoken by Jesus, God's own son, during perhaps his darkest hour on this earth. Jesus, our Saviour, cried out these words to his Father.
There is faith and there is pain and sadness and hurt. Those words give me comfort today as my heart cries them out.
