Psalm 139:1-16 (The Message)
GOD, investigate my life; get all of the facts firsthand. I'm an open book to you; even from the distance, you know what I'm thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of your sight. You know everything I'm going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead, you're there too-your reassuring presence , coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful. I can't take it all in! Is there any place that I can go to avoid your Spirit? To be out of your sight? If I climb to the sky, you're there! If I go underground, you're there! If I flew on mornings wings to the far western horizon, You'd find me in a minute-you're already there waiting! Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark! At night I'm immersed in the light!" It's a fact; darkness is not dark to you; night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to you. Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out. You formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you High God, you're breathtaking. Body and Soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration-what a creation! You know me, inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing to something. Like an OPEN BOOK, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stage of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.
I wanted to read this passage of scripture today in light of the knowledge that right now God is forming Baby Bauslaugh as we speak. How humbling it is to know that God is behind every second of our lives and even in the process of forming us from the moment of conception until the day we take our last breath. Though we may not feel like it, God is ALWAYS there during every second of every moment of our lives. Let us live in light of this truth from Psalm 139! Thank you God! You are AMAZING!
