Kings are inherently dignified which becomes a problem when God directs our actions. God seems to have a different way of doing things which makes it hard to jump in.

Sticking with God can sometimes feel very lonely. There are times when everything seems dark and we’re all alone. The truth is God has a plan and it’s good.
