shared experiences…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Psalm 22:1-8

My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

​​Why are You so far from helping Me,

​​And from the words of My groaning?

O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear;

​​And in the night season, and am not silent.

 ​​But You are holy,

​​Enthroned in the praises of Israel.

​​Our fathers trusted in You;

​​They trusted, and You delivered them.

 ​​They cried to You, and were delivered;

​​They trusted in You, and were not ashamed.

 ​​But I am a worm, and no man;

​​A reproach of men, and despised by the people.

 ​​All those who see Me ridicule Me;

​​They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

​​“He trusted in the LORD, let Him rescue Him;

​​Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!”
