Oh Lord, You have searched me and You know me.
Tomorrow is my daughter's last day of school before the summer break. I can't believe how time has flown by! Incredible that she is already finishing this year of school. In celebration of the "break", I thought it would be fun to break away from my "blogging routine" of following the Proverbs, and just do some spontaneous verses. Yes, I know, for those of you that know me.....spontaneous is not a word frequently used to describe me, but I wish it was, so I am going to try to just relax a little and go where the Spirit leads.
Tonight, I decided to do my all time favorite chapter in the Bible, which is Psalm 139. Verse one, is such a comfort to me. When I get all stressed out about things and trying to be "perfect" for the Lord, I repeat this verse and tension drops from me. Oh Lord, You have searched me and You know me!!! He knows me!! What a relief....no facades, no perfection needed...He's already searched me. He knows the good parts and the bad parts. (Insert deep easy breath in followed by a long sigh out.)
Thank you for creating me just the way I am and for knowing every detail of my life. Help me to rest in You tonight and to find joy in Your presence.
