A Heart of Gold

Blog Frame .png

Over the past month, I've been reading about a King from thousands of years ago. His life story has relentlessly challenged me, brought me to tears, and provided deep insight into my circumstance. His name was King David, someone known as, "A person after God's own heart". If you are a Christian, this is quite the compliment; potentially, the best compliment one could ever receive. 

How did he lead millions of people and maintain a heart of gold?

Here's a hint: These are some of his lasts words on this earth...

One who rules over people justly,
   ruling in the fear of God,
is like the light of morning,
  like the sun rising on a cloudless morning,
gleaming from the rain on the grassy land.
— King David

David knew he wasn't enough. In his own power, he would never be good enough. It was only through God that David found the confidence and the ability to lead nations. David walked humbly knowing that God was the epicenter and not himself. David had an utter dependance on God that very few people attain. 

I hope, I pray that I can have a heart of Gold just like David. I hope I can walk humbly with a deep dependance on the God who qualifies me. 

Be like the sun rising on a cloudless morning
