Everyone knows David as the man after God's heart. He was king and a good king he was. God loved David and blessed him many times over. Blessings on David was not unusual. It was a way of life for him. Wouldn't you have loved to live the life of David?
But wait! What about the time Absalum, his son rose up in rebellion against the David and set out to kill him and crown himself king. That surely was not a good time in David's life. Or what about another son of his dieing because of David's sin with Bathsheba? Or what about the time… The list goes on.
It seems obvious to me, life is meant to be what it is. Sometimes events make us happy. Sometimes events make us sad. We need to remember, events are nothing more than happenings. They do not define who we are or who God is. They are just events.
In the good and bad, thank God for what you have and look forward to the next day with Jesus. Who knows, maybe God will see the trouble you are in and make something good out of it?
"And who knows, maybe God will see the trouble I'm in today and exchange the curses for something good." ~David
