Desperate to escape the attempts on his life by his one-time ally, King Saul, David clung to this mantra, given to him as a child when the prophet Samuel anointed him the next king of Israel. Did he have the heart of a king? Doubt ravaged him as he took refuge in the Judean wilderness, supported by his band of 400 outlaws, keeping clear of King Saul, never knowing when-- or if-- he would achieve his life's goal. Enduring betrayal and the loss of those closest to him, he forged on, ultimately eluding the King by hiding out in the land of his enemy, the Philistines.
Would David be trapped in allegiance to the enemy, now that he was living under their protection? Or will he reach his aim and become Israel’s next King?

Being assaulted by a family member puts nurse Charity Cristy into a tailspin.
Consumed by the need to check parking lots for her assailant’s car and to triple-check the door locks at home, Charity finds it impossible to feel safe. And she can’t talk to her husband, Jeff, about what happened—his hard-won reconciliation with his brother is at stake.
When Charity’s new patient, Angelica, is admitted to the hospital after the latest in a series of accidents at home, Charity begins to wonder about the cause of the mishaps. Is the young lady unlucky? Clumsy? By her fourth hospital stay Angelica is scared to be at home, not knowing what may happen next. A conversation with a retired police officer helps Charity discover the real reason for her misfortune, and she comes up with a plan.
Will helping Angelica overcome her fear give Charity the courage to conquer her own assailant the next time he attacks her?
