On Dark Times

Whenever and wherever betrayal and deception occur, those are the dark times in life. Especially when it comes from family, dear friends and the church.

Though not anywhere near the church’s sexual abuse cases, I have experienced both betrayal and deception. And it took me many years to recover. The road to recovery wouldn’t have been possible without focusing on Jesus and his cross.

For was not Jesus both betrayed and deceived by one of his own?

There's an old church saying, "Let us not leave Jesus because of Judas." Let us remember the eleven who kept the faith.

Let us learn from Him, pray for those who have suffered much, and persevere with those who continue to do good.
