(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Rejection and loneliness

a) The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6 NKJV)

2. Other Scriptures

(Psalms 43:5 NIV) 
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

(Psalms 88:1-18 NIV) 

O LORD, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you. {2} May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry. 

{3} For my soul is full of trouble and my life draws near the grave. {4} I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am like a man without strength. {5} I am set apart with the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, who are cut off from your care. 

{6} You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths. {7} Your wrath lies heavily upon me; you have overwhelmed me with all your waves. Selah {8} You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape; {9} my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, 

O LORD, every day; I spread out my hands to you. {10} Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do those who are dead rise up and praise you? Selah {11} Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness in Destruction ? {12} Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion? 

{13} But I cry to you for help, O LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you. {14} Why, O LORD, do you reject me and hide your face from me? {15} From my youth I have been afflicted and close to death; I have suffered your terrors and am in despair. {16} Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me. {17} All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me. {18} You have taken my companions and loved ones from me; the darkness is my closest friend.

The End ...
