Why So Downcast?

She had found a treasure, but her companion laid jealous claim to it and viciously attacked her. She came running to me but she was so downcast she wouldn't even lift her face to me unless I cupped her chin.

There are many people who can relate to her in a spiritual way. You joyfully find treasures in God's word and gladly share them with your companions, and then the unthinkable happens; they trample your pearls of wisdom and then turn and tear you to peices, leaving you wounded and confused. In such situations it's easy to become downcast and it may be difficult to lift your face to God. 


Psalm 147:3
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

No matter what, we must keep our eyes on Jesus.  Even when others seek to bring harm.  He will bind up our wounds and bring healing.  But don't be afraid to lift your eyes to Him.
