Ps. 139:1 Oh, Lord, thou hast searched me and known me….
He knows when I’m discouraged, when I feel alone, defeated and depressed.
He knows when I’m at a loss of words to pray and when I can’t even cry out to Him.
He knows when confusion has darkened the path and I can’t even begin to see a flicker of light.
He knows when I can’t lift my head and even utter, help me Lord.
He knows when I want to spend a day saying thank you for my many blessings, but I end up crying through the tears, thank you for being there Lord.
He knows when my heart is screaming I need wisdom, direction and peace and I wonder when it will come.
He knows when I can’t take “it” anymore and He waits for me to leave it at HIS feet.
So, I wonder, why do I not leave “it” there? Why do I carry these burdens, doubts and fears? Why, when I know that HE will carry the burdens and ME too.
When I can’t do this, when I can’t take another step, when I can’t stop the tears or see the light – HE KNOWS and he chooses to love me anyway, wait for me anyway and pour mercy and grace out on me so that the JOY of the LORD can be my strength. (Neh. 8:10)
He has created me to be exactly who I am. He has worked all things together for good for me in the past and will continue to do so.
I will continue to be in awe that even though he KNOWS me, He LOVES me.
How about you?
HE knows you and chooses to love you.
That is awesome! Don’t you think?
