February 15

David didn’t care what anyone else was saying about him or doing, all he cared about was his relationship with the Lord.  He trusted God no matter what they said about him, did to him, or anything else that happened in life.  Is that the way we live?

I am reminded of the hymn Though None Go With Me
The origin of this song is not really known, and is often attributed as “author unknown” or “anonymous”. The words were possibly written down by Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889— to around 1929) an Indian Christian minister, a Sikh who converted to Christianity around 1905. In his book Why, God, Why, Peramangalam Porinju Job tells a story of the origin of the words, some of which were based on the last words of a Christian convert in Assam in northeast India in the mid-1800s. Tribal leaders persecuted the man and his family and ordered him to renounce his faith. He replied, “I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back.” The chief ordered the execution of the man’s children, but the man said, “Though no one joins me, still I will follow.” Next they killed his wife. With a final opportunity to deny, he refused to deny Christ. Before he was executed he said, “The cross before me, the world behind me.” Job’s story goes on to relate that the village chief came to know Christ, as well as many others in the village. (Source Unknown)

I have decided to follow Jesus; no turning back, no turning back. Though none go with me, still I will follow, the world behind me, the cross before me, no turning back, no turning back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehuBXUD5h8U

But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD, I say, “You are my God.” (Psalm 31:14)
