David’s Suffering

It must have been tough to be David.
He just tried his best to be a good soldier for the country.
He killed enemies after enemies and he played music for his father in law, Saul.
But most importantly, he followed the Lord.

Initially, things were great for him.
People of the country loved him.
He was anointed to be the next king. He even became the king’s son in law.
Yet in the end, he had to escape for his life from the king’s jealousy.

“What have I done?” he must have thought. “Did I choose this path?”
“Why do things end up to be like this?”
Yet, despite all his situation, he kept believing in God.
Eventually, he did become a king.

Why is my situation so difficult like this now?
I do not know, either.
Like David, I did not choose to be in it.
Yet, as David believed in God, so shall I believe in God.

Suffering precedes glory, I conclude.
