holding on

Sometimes we need to just read some verses that talk about nothing my God's love & support...

Psalm 139

 O LORD, you have examined my heart

  and know everything about me.

 You know when I sit down or stand up.

  You know my thoughts even when I'm far away.

 You see me when I travel

  and when I rest at home.

  You know everything I do.

 You know what I am going to say

  even before I say it, LORD.

 You go before me and follow me.

  You place your hand of blessing on my head.

 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

  too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

  I can never get away from your presence!

 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

  if I go down to the grave, you are there.

 If I ride the wings of the morning,

  if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

 even there your hand will guide me,

  and your strength will support me.

 I could ask the darkness to hide me

  and the light around me to become night—

   but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.

To you the night shines as bright as day.

  Darkness and light are the same to you.

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body

  and knit me together in my mother's womb.

 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

  Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,

  as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

 You saw me before I was born.

  Every day of my life was recorded in your book.

Every moment was laid out

  before a single day had passed.

17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.

  They cannot be numbered!

 I can't even count them;

  they outnumber the grains of sand!

And when I wake up,

  you are still with me

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;

  test me and know my anxious thoughts.

 Point out anything in me that offends you,

  and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
