Psalm 139:1-6 “O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;”

Lord, you know who I am. You know my words before they ever cross my lips.

Lord, thank you for loving me so much that you never let me out of your sight.

A new creation, a child of God, chosen, your temple, a product of your workmanship, holy and beloved, a child of light, not of darkness.

Help me to remember who my heavenly father is when I forget

When I might feel alone, forgotten,

When I am full of joy, happiness,

“Fearfully and wonderfully made”
