Good Wednesday morning. I prayed for you last night. May God comfort all of your broken pieces. May his everlasting love bring you to a place of wholeness and healing.
Your heart will begin to long more and more for God’s presence. As you spend more time learning, studying the word, and developing an intimate time with God, you will long for the presence of God even more, just as the deer in Psalm 42. Seek him and chase him with all of your heart.
The two most important commands given to the children of God are to love God with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength. Secondly, to love your neighbor as you would want to be loved (even on your not so loveable days).
Be patient with yourself and allow God to complete the work he began in you, before you were even born.
New International Version (NIV)
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
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.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Remember, I love you. God loves you….and there is nothing you can do to change our mind.
