Have You Read It?

This morning I woke up thinking about what I was going to write about I guess that makes this Day 32!

I have been writing about Psalm 139 for the last month.  I have written about my strengths and my weaknesses, my successes and failures, and my insecurities and my identity.  But my question for you is this:  Have you read it?  Have you really read it?  Have you soaked it in until it changes you at a cellular level?  

Why don't you do it now?

Psalm 139

“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. 
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 
even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. 
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! 
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.
 If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty! 
They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. 
Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you? 
I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. 
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 
See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Psalm 139:1-24 NIV
