A New Day Has Come

The Lord is so good to renew our minds and hearts with each new morning! After my last post, I spent some time reading the Psalms, I've been doing a lot of that lately and have found such comfort and assurance there that the Lord knows what he is doing and will take care of me and HIS little child growing inside me. My favorite chapter in the whole Bible has always been Psalm 139. There is such a peace that surpasses all understanding when I read and re-read that chapter. No matter where I'm at in my walk, or just life in general, I always get something wonderful from that passage, although never the same thing! Anyway, I just wanted to share that I know the Lord has such great plans not only for my life but for the life of my(HIS) child, no matter what happens, HE is in control and I am learning more and more each day to just trust Him, even though I do not see Him! Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with a peace in my spirit that I do not understand, for it is then I know that it is from you and you alone!!

Psalm 139 (ESV)

1 O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
3 You search out my path and my lying down
and are even acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
9 If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
and your righe hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,"
12 even the darkness in not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfull made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
19 Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!
O men of blood, depart from me!
20 The speak against you with malicious intent;
your enemies take your name in vail!
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
22 I hate them with complete hatred;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
24 And see if there be any grevious way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!
