Today's reading: 2 Samuel 5:1-16
I'm a type A, go-getter. So waiting patiently can be difficult for me. Once I'm given an assignment or set my sights on a goal, I'm all in, pushing full forward in an effort to achieve whatever it is that I'm focused on or working toward. So when things don't progress as quickly, or in the manner in which I envision, I'm susceptible to frustration, discouragement and doubt. That's why I'm grateful for getting to see David's journey--in detail--and for the lessons his life story has provided over the past weeks. Many years, mixed with many difficult experiences, transpired before David finally became king over all of Israel. And through it all, he stayed the course spiritually, keeping his eyes on God and trusting His plan and timing.
Think back over what we've read the past few weeks beginning with 1 Samuel 16 where David was anointed by Samuel. What have you learned about God's timing and trusting God from David's journey? Tami
