It Is Painful

It is painful to have friends who have been such a help to me turn on me with such rancor.  I may in the eyes of men not hold correct opinions or act according to their vision or convictions, but I do not take this current situation in a light manner, a fearful manner, or a vengeful manner.  I do not want to be a winner by cheating.  I will not play with laws I swore allegiance to.  With any contrived desire towards deflection of my deep foundational desire to follow God's will as I believe He led my conscience to embrace.  How else will I ever approach Him in the wilderness of life?  Knowing that I ask this guidance only to show myself a coward in defending the course He let me take -- He led me to take.
