Psalm 139

LORD, you have probed me, you know me: you know when I sit and stand; you understand my thoughts from afar. You sift through my travels and my rest; with all my ways you are familiar. Even before a word is on my tongue, LORD, you know it all. (vv.1-4)
Thank you, God, for knowing me and for understanding me.

Where can I go from your spirit? From your presence, where can I flee? If I ascend to the heavens, you are there; if I lie down in Sheol, there you are. If I take the wings of dawn and dwell beyond the sea, even there your hand guides me, your right hand holds me fast. (vv.7-10)
Thank you, God, for never leaving me and keeping me safe.

You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made. My very self you know. In your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be. (vv. 13-14,16)
Thank you, God, for creating me and giving me a life with purpose.

How precious to me are your designs, O God; how vast the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the sands. (vv. 17-18a)
Thank you, God, for sharing the wonder of who you are and inspiring awe in me.
