Have you ever wondered if God could really use someone like you? Then the story of David is for you. The shepherd. The king. The warrior. The friend. The sinner. The man of faith. David is known for carrying many titles over the span of his lifetime, but he is most often referred to as a man after God’s own heart. While David’s transparent faith was true and his loyalty to his Lord was real, an in-depth look into Scripture reveals that his life was also marked by times of drama, deceit, devastation, and doubt. How then is David known for being such an influential Bible hero? Unfaithful David served a faithful God.
In this eight-week David online Bible study at Love God Greatly, our look into the life of David will ultimately point us to a better Shepherd, Friend, and King: Jesus. On Mondays and Tuesdays of each week we’ll explore David’s life. Wednesdays and Thursdays we will look at Jesus, and Fridays we’ll examine our own hearts. As we study together, see if you can spot God’s faithfulness, His kindness, His patience, His justice, His mercy, and His grace in the life of David. For the God of David is our God as well.
The life God chose for David truly was a life of adventure rooted in faith. Through the power of Christ in us, we too can become women after God’s own heart.

I love a good story. The problem is that I am fainthearted and easily discouraged, so about half way through any tale, I have to resist the urge to stop reading. Every epic adventure is full of conflict and obstacles. I don’t like the dark and foreboding strands of...read more
"But the Lord is faithful..." - 2 Thessalonians 3:3 We were nearly 2,000 miles from home, following through with our commitment to purposely find adventure in our early years of marriage. The day had consisted of a hotter-than-we-were-used-to climate, exploration of...read more

As we read about the biblical patriarchs, it is easy to set them on a pedestal and view them as super godly. We see them with faith so strong that they can boldly stare into the mouths of lions, defy Pharaoh, and battle nations. It seems like some had such a love for...read more
I love David. He’s honestly one of my favorites. Reading about his poor choices, his less than admirable decisions, and his selfishness… not one of my favorite topics for this David-loving girl. I like seeing him depending on God. I like seeing him being humble and...read more
DAVID THE SINNER And when the mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the Lord. - 2 Samuel 11:27 It would be easy to read about David the Sinner this week -...read more
I am riveted by the idea that God knows me not just as His follower, but as a close friend. He knows that when I get tired or lost in a weaving train of thought I twist my hair into long ropes. He knows when I laugh deep and long I giggle so hard I nearly stop...read more
I’m learning in those dark, hard, painful times in our lives that many times God blesses us with the sweetest of friendships to help us endure. Friends who become His tangible hands and feet. Friends who literally wrap their arms around us, speak words of...read more

Jesus: The Better Warrior... I'm a mom to three boys. You know what that means, don't you? No matter how often I remind them to be gentle and compassionate, they always find a way to remind me that God made them ALL boy. In their world, sticks become swords....read more
Today we come to a very interesting part of the story of David. We have seen David’s boldness as he fought Goliath, but David was not fearless. There are many instances in the Psalms where David admits his fears. As a matter of fact, sometimes he is so fearful that it...read more

My kingdom is not of this world… Last week we learned from David’s life that a person’s heart is more important than his appearance (1 Samuel 16:7). God used David to pave the way for Jesus, and Jesus’s kingdom is unlike anything anyone ever expected. Everyone but...read more
Always and forever - two words that promise so much, yet rarely deliver. Lovers pledge these words in everything from Hallmark cards to wedding vows. BFFs make friendship pacts with these words and wear matching necklaces to prove it. My seven year old daughter uses...read more
