I needed this today...

O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me. (isn't that the coolest)
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.

Where can I go from Your spirit?
Or where can I flee for Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.

If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me,"
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, (isn't that comforting)
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

For you formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
Marvelous are your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

My frame has not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. (how cool is that?)
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

How precious also are Your thoughts of me, O God!
How great is the sun of them! (can you even imagine?)
If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake I will still be with You. (This is what I need to hear)

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties; (Yes Lord!)
And see if there is any wicked way in me, (REMOVE IT!)
And lead me in the way of everlasting. Psalm 139

AMEN.
