Genesis 36 & 37

5 Apr

You can read these chapters on Bible Gateway.

Genesis 37:25-38 When we feel abandoned our insides tell us to project those feelings onto all our relationships. Therefore thinking that ______________ rejected me, left me behind, so everyone rejects me, even God will reject me.

Joseph was sold as a slave by his own brothers. Joseph had some deep issues with abandonment that he needed to deal with. This trial in his life was part of God’s great plan. (Genesis 45:9-11)

At some point in our life we will face the feeling of abandonment. But these relationships are here on earth with people. Other people have faults and have their own feelings of abandonment to work on. No matter what life brings us no matter what relationship fails us, God promised to never leave us. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Reminded of the scene in the movie E.T ~ “Ill be right here”
