Do as David Did

Everyone says that David is a great role model and that we should strive to know God just as well as David did. But, I think that we often get caught up in trying to do the things David did while he knew God really well. We focus on praising God all the time just as David did. After trying to do that for a sequence of days, we eventually grow tired of it. That (in my opinion) is because we are trying to start where David finished. We need to start where David started: in the fields tending his flock. David had hours of hours of time alone in the fields. What did he use this time doing? Not facebooking or texting, not reading a thriller or listening to the newest hit Christian music… I think he spent this time praying and just being in God’s presence. This is where I think the key is at. We need to focus on spending hours of our time with God. Then the praising and worshiping will come naturally. Then the trusting will become easier. Then we won’t give up after a few days.

About Hudson

I live in Indiana. I enjoyed playing soccer all four years of high school. I co-captained and won the MVP award my senior year. I also have created many film projects, the most extensive of which won a film festival award for Best Cinematography during my senior year. It is a 10-minute short film called Café Encounter and can be watched on YouTube. I have been actively involved in my youth group and am a leader for a middle school boys group on Sunday mornings. I was also blessed to go on two mission trips to Belize and Ecuador respectively. Belize really awakened my faith in Christ and pushed me towards active obedience and love for God. Ecuador gave me a life-changing perspective on missionary work and has helped me to view myself as a missionary in my every day life, but especially with the intent of being a missionary to my work industry.
