Even though David was a “man after God’s own heart”, he also felt the sting of public rejection. His son, Absalom, turned against him and took a portion of David’s community with him. To make matters worse, as David fled for his life with his people, a man named Shimei threw stones at him. He called David a “worthless fellow” and “evil” (2 Samuel 16:5-14).

How did David recover from a past of murder, adultery, and rejection from his son and his people to finally return to as king once again?

Listen in as Amy and I talk about how we can overcome our not-so-pretty past and how we can be encouraged (and learn) from David’s story. We discuss how we can choose to react when others are cursing or talking about us.

Be part of the conversation as we share some of our own challenges in overcoming our prodigal pasts and how you can look forward, give yourself grace, and have a hope of the future.


 “The confidence of my calling enables me to overcome every difficulty without shame, for I have an intimate revelation of this God.” – 2 Timothy 1:12 The Passion Translation
