Hemmed In……

Psalm 139

1 O LORD, you have searched me 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.
4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.
5 You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

These words comfort me as I find myself crying at night as I fall to sleep and then waking up with a feeling of fear and uncertainty as to what each new day will hold.

God is familiar with all of my ways. He hears my cries. He sees my struggle. He feels my pain. He has laid His hand upon me. And before I speak, God knows me completely.

He knows you too.

We are blessed to be called children of the King.

We are hemmed in…………….behind and before! God was with us yesterday and He is with us tomorrow. He sees the whole quilt…not just the piece we are living out today.

Thankful for a Master who has a beautiful “Master plan.”

Trusting Him even in this valley,
