Psalm 139 (Sunday)
1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
This psalm of David is often chosen as a favorite scripture. It speaks of the most intimate of relationships. And what relationship can be more intimate than that of a loving creator and his cherished creation? If you are brave enough, speak this as a prayer to God. Out loud, when you are alone, in a quiet place. Immediately, you are transported to a wondrous place. There you can hear Him say to you, “I know you. I know every small detail about you. Even when you sit, and when you rise up. Yes, I know all of your quirky ways. And I love them.” As you go about your day today, smile up at God when you do those things that are uniquely “you”. Know that He made you different from every one of His creations because He has a special purpose for you.
