I read a story in the Bible during the week in 2 Sam 13 about
King Davids daugher, Tamar. Perhaps you already know this story.
At first when I read this, I could relate to the story and felt rather sad, that something like this could happen to a Kings daughter. Her brother Amnon had rape her and then did not want to have her afterwards, and even told his servants to lock the door when she is out.
I believe some of has has felt that life shut us out the same way. We were sometimes being taken advantage of and hurt so badly by others.
The good news was that her other brother Absolom took her in and cared for her.
As i read the story I acctuall grasped what I was reading.
You see King David was her father, and so is God the King our father.
Tamar was facing the same giants I had to face in the past. I could just imagine how she felt, dirty, abuses, unwanted, mistreated, rejected and been taken atvantage of. I know this feelings as well.
But Absolom took her in just as she were, after being raped, abused and shut out.
That is what God is doing for us right now. Despite all our past failures and rejection, he became our Absolom in life, that took us in on the, to care for even if no one else wanted 2.
This was so great for me to make sense from this scripture, that i really felt that I had to share this.
This is I believe, for everyone that was hurt before, thrown away, rejected or unwanted. This is for all the daughters of the King whom was stripped away from womenhood.
God will Protect, care, take in and love!
