Psalm 139

Try reading this out loud to yourself and really let the words sink in…I cannot do it without crying…I cannot grasp that kind of amazing love…

Like verse 3…it says the Lord is intimately acquainted with all our ways…

And verse 5… “You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.”

And verse 7…how we can never be away from the Lord’s presence…

And verses 11 & 12…how even when we think the darkness is overwhelming and everything is dark, nothing is dark to the Lord (can you imagine?!)…

And verses 13 & 14…how He formed us in the womb…each one of us…how we are fearfully and wonderfully made…wow!

And verse 16…how the Lord knows the number of our days even before we are born…

And so on…it’s an amazing Psalm to let your heart and mind dwell on…

It is so so so amazing...how He knows ALL, even the most evil thoughts of man, and yet He loves us enough to give his son as a sacrifice for us.

Love you Rebecca!!

I love this Psalm! But at about 2:30 this morning I was really hoping that God would physically manifest himself and lay his hand on Tabitha and put her to sleep. I know he is always with us, but sometimes I want him to be more fleshy and less ethereal--especially during tough parenting moments!
