    Got it… and it only took thirty minutes…

    This verse means to me that we have the same love for us as our Father had for His chosen; David, “a man after God’s own heart.” His contract with us because of His love… talk about chosen. Wonderful verse.

      Yay! This encourages me more than you know, Floyd. “Talk about chosen”–indeed! It’s hard to imagine God loving me as much as he loved David, but it is so. Wow.

      I hear you, Beverley. I have similar troubles. I’m going to break this verse into 4 parts in my head; that helps me remember it better (somehow). It contains such beautiful truths in each part and I don’t want to forget any.
