Naked and Unashamed but Before The Wrong King

Good Morning everyone I'm excited to have a little inspiration today. Blessed Day to you and thank you for READING.

~Naked and Unashamed but Before The Wrong King
II Samuel 11:2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.

Ruth WOMAN, there is nothing like a hot, soothing sweet fragrant, aromatic, candlelit,  bath.  Bathseba was a hard working, busy military wife of a respected serviceman. IT could be said that she was single by default, ONLY because her husband  spent a large amount of time away from home serving in the military. I'm sure she was a faithful WIFE initially. But as time went on she began to  perhaps feel unappreciated,  lonely, or even wanted to be nurtured by her husband who was constantly on the move. I'm sure that Bathseba's daily tasks became monotonous and needed something new or interesting. And I don't believe that her bath was intended to be a peep show for King David. After all she loves and respects Uriah her military husband and she probably couldn't wait until he got home. She wrote letters, prayed for him and she even sent him #selfies to keep his focus until his arrival at home. But one DAY her comfort level of being naked and unashamed could possibly cost her everything. You see the KING that she should have bared everything to was JESUS.  She should have continued to tell HIM of her loneliness, of her temptations, of her disappointments, of her disdain as a military wife. Her nakedness was to be intimate, quiet time, pouring her heart out to GOD sharing ALL that she felt and experienced while the husband was away. So that the day when King David saw her and was tempted things might have turned out differently.  There's nothing wrong with being naked and unashamed, but who'll get ALL of the GLORY?  Choose baths near royal courts wisely.
