The more life goes on the more I realize how much I need my Bible, my journal, music, family, and friends… All things that make me realize I’m not alone in this crazy fast passed world #hope #faith #journal #art #mextures #vscocam #color #coffee #life #drawing
“No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price, for I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God which cost me nothing.” - David (2 Sam. 24:24)
I think David had a healthy perspective based on his past trials. I feel he had a really good idea that if it didn’t cost him at that moment then eventually it would catch up with him and probably cost him a lot more in the future. There were things in David’s past that proved that idea to be true. At that point in his life he wasn’t going to put it off. He wanted whatever he offered to God to be pure and up right. It had to cost… God is too worthy for it not to cost.
When the rubber meets the road… Do I have that kind of integrity and fear of God? I guess at this point in my life there are some areas that I can say “Yes I do”. But I feel as much as I would like to say yes about my whole life… I can’t.
Bradley Hathaway says “I want to be like David, a man after God’s own heart, I’m not there yet but I’m past the start”. There are times I’m going in reverse… I want to be going in that direction but sometimes in my flesh I just want to do things my own way. I really do hate that about myself… I hate that I’m sometimes ok with me…
Lord… Make me not ok with me. Amen.
