“David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.”
1 Samuel 30:6 NIV
Sorrow can take us to raw, painful places. Such was the case for David and his men when they returned to their homes to find the entire city burned to the ground and their wives and children taken prisoners. In their grief they were considering what would surely be regrettable action. Most of us can relate to their strong feelings on some level. David, too, was in great distress, but he took his pain to God, and in doing so he found strength, wisdom and a right path.
Grief does not have to include bitterness and vengeful behavior when we seek God as our refuge and strength.🚦
