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.
This is my favorite psalm. Indeed, it is the one that the Holy Spirit used to change my heart and draw me in. To show me the great love God has for me; a love unlike any other. A love so strong that He can find me no matter where I am; He reached me then, when I felt like I was in the dark and all alone. His unfailing love and His amazing grace found me then. It rocked the foundation of all I knew to experience a love so strong. Through His Word & through the prayers of those who already believed, I began to understand that love and just how far it went for me; How far He went for all who would believe. “From the creation to the cross, then from the cross into eternity.” I marveled at that love then, and I marvel at it still.
May you find the wonder of His love rekindled from when it first found you, and praying that if it is finding you for the first time, that it knocks you off your feet.
Love & Blessings,
