What David Told Judy

January 26, 2019

“I know that life gives me many moments of pain and sadness. David says don’t forget life also gives you moments of great joy.”

Judy Latta wrote that. She and her family are real life friends from a church I used to serve. She gave me her expressed permission to share it with you.

Go through that again with me: “I know that life gives me many moments of pain and sadness.” Sound familiar? Sound honest? Sound like something you’ve felt, even if you’ve never expressed it this clearly?

Same here.

The David she mentions is her son, who says, “Don’t forget life also gives you moments of great joy.” Does that sound familiar, honest, and like a much-needed reminder?

Same here.

Both the “pain and sadness” and “great joy” kinds of moments are parts of the tapestry in which we live.

In the midst of it all, God is still in business.

Join me today in being thankful for David and all the others who remind us of “great joy.” Especially when those “many moments of pain and sadness” threaten to swamp us.

And maybe, just maybe, you and I can be like David for someone today.

You in?
