"Forsaken" is a dreary word.  It sounds like a sentence of death.  It is the record of the sharpest sorrows, and the prophecy of the most dreadful ills.  An abyss of misery drops its mouth wide open in that word "Forsaken."  

Forsaken by one who pledged his honor!  Forsaken by a friend so long tried and trusted!  Forsaken by a dear relative!  Forsaken by father and mother!  Forsaken by all!  This is despair indeed, and yet it may be patiently borne if the Lord will take us up.

But what must it be like to feel forsaken of God?  Think of that bitterest of cries, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"  Have we ever in any degree tasted the bitterness and the gall of "Forsaken," in that sense?  If so, let us beseech the Lord to save us from any repetition of so unspeakable a sorrow.  Oh, that such darkness will never return!  Malicious men said of a saint, "God hath forsaken him; persecute and take him."  But it was always false.  The Lord’s loving favor shall compel our cruel foes to eat their own words, or, at least, to hold their tongues.

The reverse of all this is that matchless word, Hephzibah—"the Lord delighteth in thee." This turns weeping into dancing.  Let those who dreamed that they were forsaken hear the Lord say, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.”
