This is really encouraging

I’ve been reading about David in the Bible & remembering that he was a man after God’s heart. In knowing this, I’m extremely encouraged because I’ve been thinking about David’s shortcomings. Once David became king, he had lots of mistakes – Bathsheba, Uriah, doing a census at the end of his life, the mess up with Amnon, Tamar & Absalom. Even with all of these failures, poor decisions & shortcomings, David was still a man after God’s heart.
David loved God & expressed his love through repentance, worship & honor.
For me this is really encouraging because I have my own fair share of failures & shortcomings but I’m very much in love w God 🙂
