You are not alone. 
The Lord is near.
Keep walking with the King!

  1. Thank you for these verses. I’m feeling very betrayed by someone who called me friend at work. Being blamed for mistakes or problems and taking advantage of our friendship is leaving me feeling angry, and hurt…
    Its so good to reflect and especially remember that Jesus faced far worse betrayal. That God will protect us and that we dont need to think about avenging the wrong done to us. I rest my mind, my peace and my hope in the Lord who sees, hears, knows, our TRUE hearts and doesn’t listen to rumors or lies.
    thank you for this post.

  2. Currently feeling betrayed by someone I called a friend, I have always been there for them but when I needed them it’s always a blank stare… Hoping anyone going through the same understands that God knows your heart and even if you’re abandoned by everyone he’ll never abandon you, so dry your tears and rejoice for the lord remembers🤭

  3. Feeling really down and weary….I was betrayed by my husband…he has been full of lies and committing adultery now and then..I don’t even know what I can do anymore coz when you find out and ask him he will just lie.but the verses has made me feel revived abit

    1. I can very much relate to you and that also happened to me. Each day I kept loosing my wounded feelings to God and that helps me to accept my situation and move forward. Always remember the passage of Romans 12:19.
      Stay blessed, God is faithful and He is bigger than our brokenness.

  4. Feeling so hurt and betrayed by family and a so called friend who purposefully wanted to hurt me and it was evident and she doesn’t care . I want to let her have that victory at the cost of our friendship and pray that god can walk me forward into what is greater and lies ahead for me .
