I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Lord, I thank you for the growing trust and warmth between my Mate and I again. This morning he seems more upbeat than he has in many days, more further along in healing, in moving past the recent events. Thank you for that, Lord. Meanwhile, I feel like it hurts more than ever for me. I have this huge hole in my heart where the people and the cats of the old place used to be. I hurt for them all, and I hurt for myself. I feel like a rejected outcast, and it is casting a grey shadow over all of life right now. It will be hard to work today, Lord, and to serve my Mate and be a listening ear and a good friend. I know you can pull me out of this funk, and I ask you to at least not let it drag my Mate down, even if I have to sludge my way through it for a time. Father, joy seems too far over my head to reach it today. If you offer it to me, you may have to give me something to climb up, to reach it. Or else just meet me where I am, at this low, sad point in healing. It aches, Lord.

Psalm 34:17-22 ERV

Pray to the LORD, and he will hear you. He will save you from all your troubles. 
The LORD is close to those who have suffered disappointment. He saves those who are discouraged. 
Good people might have many problems, but the LORD will take them all away. 
He will protect them completely.
Not one of their bones will be broken. 
But troubles will kill the wicked. The enemies of those who live right will all be punished. 
The LORD saves his servants. All who go to him for protection will escape punishment.
