    What use to scare me, now comforts me! This psalm use to bother me, i had the wrong preception of God. I use to think he was watching over me, to see and record all my wrong doing, and i was in for it.
    When i began to understand how much God loves me (and still working on it) it changed how i saw some scripture.

    I will Never be left alone in anything, God is my friend and is always with me.

    Psalm 139:1-16

    Lord, you have examined me
    and know all about me.
    You know when I sit down and when I
    get up. You know my thoughts before
    I think them.
    ( these word use to terrify me, cause i knew how awful i felt about myself, and i could not hide my ugliness from God. Now i know i don't even have to try and hide it from God, He knows, and it's okay, i'm forgiven, and free to love my friend, and lord in return.)

    You know where I go and where I lie
    down. You know thoroughly everything I do.
    (that no longer scares me it comforts me.)

    Lord, even before I say a word,
    you already know it.
    You are all around me- in front and in
    back- (surround in God's love, never alone.)
    and have put your hand on me. (Thank you Jesus!)

    Your Knowledge is amazing to me;
    it is more than i can understand. AMen
    Where can i go to get away from your Spirit?
    Where can I run from you? (reminds me of Jonah)

    If i go up to the heavens, you are there.
    If i lie down in the grave, you are there. (even in death He's got me covered)
    If I rise with the sun in the east
    and settle in the west beyond the sea,
    even there you would guide me.
    With your right hand you would hold me. (can't think of a better place to be.)

    I could say, "The darkness will hide me.
    Let the light around me turn into night."
    But even the darkness is not dark to you. (Of course, He made it!!! My darkness is not dark to Him at all, and i'm not alone in it.)
    The night is as light as the day;
    darkness and light are the same to You.

    (My darkness, and despair, i get lost in sometimes, that i thought separated me from God, is no problem for Him. He is there even in that, it doesn't keep Him away from me.!!)

    That have been such a comfort and revelation to me!

    You made my whole being;
    You formed me in my mother's body.
    I praise You because you made me in an
    amazing and wonderful way.
    What you have done is Wonderful. (and worthy of my praise)
    I know this very well. (let me not forget it)

    You saw my bones being formed
    as I took shape in my mother's body.
    When I was put together there,
    You saw my body as it was formed.
    All the days planned for me
    were written in your book
    before I was one day old.

    Not only does God know me, made me, He loves me, with all my inperfections. And will help shape me, if i let Him.
    I can never hide from Him, my deep inner parts are known to HIm. That should comfort us, not scare us.
    If it brings fear, then we need to rethink the way we see God our Father as a believer, or seek to be made right with Him.

    "who's in the middle of the dark? Jesus, Jesus!"

    Many blessings today,

    "I will never be left alone in anything"! This is something that I can never hear too much of! Every day I look to God in every situation, I strive to remember to ask him, consult him, welcome him into every area of my life.

    It's so good to hear this - your comments slow down my reading, so that I really take it in.

    Doing a good job, girl! :)
