David and King Saul...

David and King Saul…


I think of the story of David being

 “hunted” by King Saul.

As “God’s chosen"... David may have thought;”is it worth it all?


The many times he hid in the caves and underground…

I’m sure he had his times of happiness,

 and times of  feeling down.


Through all of this, as he was being

 chased by his “adversary…”

God provided a safe place for him...  A “sanctuary…”


David decided not to take matters into his own hands…

Even though he was being chased all over the land.


Though David found out where King Saul had slept…

His promise to God…  He surely kept!


He chose not to take Saul’s life.

 The opportunity was there…

He didn’t seek “vengeance...” 

He was someone who cared!


David trusted all that he had to a

God who reigns supreme.

He knew that one day…  God would take

 care of everything!


Do you feel like your life’s “being chased around?”

Perhaps there’s no where to go...

 No safe place to be found?


I’m going to tell you...  There's someone

who's right here!

His love surrounds you! 

You’ve nothing else to fear!


This same God who kept David out of harm’s way…

Is here right now!  And can change your life today!


An everlasting life with Jesus…

 Is what you could be missin.’

Won’t you give him a chance…

 Hear his voice… And listen???

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
