Oh, blessed be God! He didn't go off and leave us. Psalm 124:6 (MSG)
The fear of abandonment is such a huge anxiety for many of us. I look back now on my life relationships and see how fear of being rejected played Stage Manager to many of the key relational roles of my life. It's hard to play your role well when that fear is hidden in the wings producing all sorts of irrational anxieties.
How interesting that God consistently reminds us of his stalwart faithfulness. Jesus repeatedly reminded His followers that He would never leave them or forsake them.
I've often heard it said that our experiences with human relationships affect the way we see and perceive God. I know that's true. I tend to believe, however, that God would prefer the opposite to be true; that our relationship with Him would positively affect the way we relate to others.
