Shunning

#1 Post by Amitaf » 4 years ago

Shunning

(This happened to me recently, so I felt the need to share my experience)

I guess I never saw this coming
I thought I knew about shunning
So to treat me now like a leper
Won't make me feel any better

I turned up for Field Service group
And then in walked the troop
An Elder, Servant and Pioneer
So what was there for me to fear?

I looked across in their direction
Hoping for them to show affection
Not a smile or even a glance
I really did give them a chance

It's such a shame, what have I done?
It used to be so much fun
It's such a shame I feel so sad
To be with them I used to be glad

It's so unfair, where is the love?
Jehovah watches from above
I've done nothing wrong, not transgressed
Even the angels know I gave my best

So this act of shunning
They think is very cunning
Because if they won't talk to me
They think at meetings I'll want to be

But it's backfired I do think
Because their company now does stink
Why would I go to a meeting?
If there's no love or even a greeting?

It's now only a matter of time
I put my feelings to a rhyme
With tears trickling down my face
It's not Christian, it's a disgrace!

How sad that you are in this situation. But by what you have said it looks like Matt 5:10,11,12 apply to you.

Thank you Marina
I am getting over it so to speak.
I have decided that I will stop attending now.I think my ministry too as it was a a FS arrangement I was treated this way- doesn't inspire one to go out - plus I feel I don't go out with the same purpose or message!
