You have searched me, LORD,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, LORD, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.-Psalm 139:1-6 (TNIV)
When I feel like I’m not measuring up, whether that measure is my own, my assumption of others’, or my assumption of God’s I inevitably revert to negative self-talk. Lately, I feel behind in everything and find myself constantly telling myself to Be More. However, God is awakening my soul to recognizing these lies and helping me replace them with Truths.
Father God, please forgive me for these sins, for insulting you and your creation. “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. -Psalm 139:14 (TNIV)” I ask you continue to awake me to my sins and help me learn to honor you and myself. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
