Psalms 22:1. My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? I groan in prayer, but help seems far away.

There are times in our walk we think God has forgotten about us. Mary must have struggled against that when she became pregnant. Joseph must have struggled with that as he tried to decide what to do with his pregnant fiancée. Both of them probably struggled with it as the journeyed to Jerusalem so late in the pregnancy finding no place to stay and bringing forth a baby alone and in a place meant only for animals. They probably struggled with the emotion of desertion but they pushed on in faith with their minds, hearts and ears ready for God. When we struggle with that emotion of being forgotten by God we must realize emotions are not based on reality. God said He will never leave us. During Advent let us find someone who feels deserted and alone and share the Presence of God with them.
