Worn

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 27:1-12

One of the things I love and find fascinating about the Bible is how it gives us the complete picture of real life--successes, mistakes, complete failures, plateaus, joy, pain, sin, obedience. So we get to see chapters like 1 Samuel 27 where David is in a low time and makes some poor choices. He's weary and discouraged from his prolonged running from Saul, and in this state, takes his focus off of God and His promises. Doubt creeps in and influences his thinking and actions. The next thing you know, David, drawing on his own strength and following his faulty emotions, seeks refuge with, and then lives among, the Philistines.

How has going through a long period of trial or difficulty impacted your patience and faith? What sorts of things help you keep your eyes on God when you start feeling worn, weary and discouraged? Tami
