Picture a young woman, about to break a man’s heart, demurely saying, “It isn’t you, it’s me.”

Despite how sincerely the line is acted out, everyone knows it’s not the truth. It doesn’t ease the pain, it adds to it.

He promises to answer our prayers.
He promises to hold us eternally in His Hands.
He promises to be faithful, even when we aren’t.
He promises to protect us under His wings.

“It’s not YOU, It’s Me!”
