Read Psalm 139:1-6 and 13-18
Lord, you have examined me and you know me.
2You know everything I do;
from far away you understand all my thoughts.
3You see me, whether I am working or resting;
you know all my actions.
4Even before I speak,
you already know what I will say.
5You are all round me on every side;
you protect me with your power.
6Your knowledge of me is too deep;
it is beyond my understanding.
13You created every part of me;
you put me together in my mother’s womb.
14I praise you because you are to be feared;
all you do is strange and wonderful.
I know it with all my heart.
15When my bones were being formed,
carefully put together in my mother’s womb,
when I was growing there in secret,
you knew that I was there-
16you saw me before I was born.
The days allotted to me
had all been recorded in your book,
before any of them ever began.
17O God, how difficult I find your thoughts;q
how many of them there are!
18If I counted them, they would be more than the grains of sand.
When I awake, I am still with you.
This Psalm reminds us just how well God knows us.
Lord, you know everything about me. Yet you never leave me. Thank you for loving me. Help me to remember and feel that love today. And to share that love with those I meet along the way.
