There are those times when you can't figure out why certain things are happening.
The times when you are supposed to be asking, "What are you trying to teach me here God?"

The answer is certainly difficult to find...or hear sometimes.

Thankfully, I'm not alone.
A guy named King David had that same problem, and his problems were WAY worse than least so far.

The Bible says that David was a man after God's own heart.
Sometimes I think, "Yea, right on David! You are a man after God's own heart!"
Sometimes I think, "What's wrong with you David?  Clearly you haven't a clue how to live a decent fellows life."

Often, I want to get judgemental about him.
Often I put on my E.R.A. hat and have a hissy fit when I read about him.
(No, I don't really own an E.R.A. hat).

Then I look at my own life which I like to think of as super great and godly...and sometimes, it is.
Sometimes I think,"Yea, way to go ME."
Then sometimes I think, "What's wrong with me?  Clearly I have no clue how to live a decent life."

Then I become very thankful for that ancient king.  He is just like me, plus, he never had the advantage of Christian self help books and 2000 years plus of scholarly research to help us all live a life pleasing to God.

Thanks for telling us a very human man could capture your heart.

That means that maybe I could capture your heart too God.

I love you God.
Thanks for sending Jesus.
