There is a bible story about David, the King
Mostly when talked about, it is about his sin
What I see is a story of Grace and Restoration
Rejoicing I thank God, there is no separation
A man after God’s own heart
He was the greatest sinner
And yet You called him that
What did he do? He loved you
Repenting for a start
Accepting what sin did to him
He never turned his back
Lord let me learn a lesson
From this man who stole Your heart.
COMMENT ON A SINNER
One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the story of David.
David had many qualities described in his own writings.
He was trusting
The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear
He was loving
I love you, O Lord, my strength
He was repentant
For the sake of your name. O Lord, forgive my iniquity,
though it is great
It shows the grace and love of God. Anything is forgiven if I repent.
I am a sinner and there is great comfort in knowing that I have a God
who is greater than any sin.
What I learned was that no matter what problems or how hard life
becomes I accept it never doubting that it will be for my good.
I want to be a woman after His own heart.
“I have found David the son of Jesse,
a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill
all my will”.

“What I learned was that no matter what problems or how hard life

A very profound sense of faith. Difficult for most of us to internalize. However, I am at the level of “everything’s going to turn out the way it was supposed to turn out”. I’m not sure this is always comforting though. One thing is comforting: “Obey my commandments, preach my Gospel and have no fear for I shall be with you even till the end of the age.” Gives me comfort, acceptance and confidence.
Amen to that Carl, especially, “I shall be with you even till the end of the age”. Knowing He is with me through the good and the bad is very comforting.
