This morning as I sat down for some quiet time, I was drawn to read one of my favorite Psalms, Psalm 139. The lines of this beautiful poem bring me such great comfort and it seems as though each time I read it, a different sentence or phrase touches me in a new way. Today it was verse 2:
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you understand my thoughts from afar.
One of my greatest blessings is to sit with a friend, over a cup of coffee (cappuccino preferred), sharing stories.
Is there anything better than having a friend who just ‘gets’ you? Someone who knows both your shinning moments and greatest mess-ups and loves you anyway? Friends like that are hard to find, and certainly one of life’s greatest blessings.
But, why do I search for people to ‘get me,’ when I have a God who totally knows me, loves me and understands me. God understands my thoughts even before they turn into actions. He even understands the thoughts that I would never reveal to anyone, even that closest friend!
What great comfort that brings me…..my God, who understands my thoughts from afar.
