Wow. Another birthday is here. I don’t know where the time went but I am grateful nonetheless for another year of life. From day one, God you have been so faithful. Words honestly can’t even describe how I feel when I think about your faithfulness. Thank you. For every trial you’ve brought me through, for every blessing you’ve showered me with, for the loving people you’ve put in my life, AAHH the list just goes on and on. In spite of my inconsistency, through all the ups and downs, you have never left me. You are such a good Father and it’s amazing to know that nothing could ever separate me from your love. Everything I have, I have because of you. You have made me into the woman I am today. I don’t know where I’d be without you and I never want to find out. Even though I may not know what the future holds, in this moment, I am at peace. Because I know that whatever comes my way, you will have allowed it and nothing catches you by surprise. Today I confess that your plans for me are good. You hold my life in your hands. And so I will choose to trust you every step of the way, to the best of my ability. There is no place I’d rather be, than in your unfailing love. Thank you, just for who you are. There is no one like you Lord. ❤
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
3 You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
4 You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
5 You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!
7 I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave, you are there.
9 If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.
11 I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—
12 but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
