Failure can be unbearable, none of us wants it. What will our family and friends think? That is our concern as well as concern for self. Sometimes though others fail us let us down – even those we thought loved us. That is doubly hard. What did Jesus think? Where were his friends would no-one step forward? He is more and more alone.
Prayer. Jesus forgive us for those times we have failed to be there for others when they needed us and thank you for sharing our aloneness when we feel abandoned. Teach us to follow you.
