Psalm 139 Out of Order


Not proud of the way I reacted to my husband last night and needing some forgiveness, I went to the Lord this morning...and He led me to Psalm 139. Sometimes looking at things in a little different order can really give you a fresh perspective so I wanted to share with you how He blessed me with the reminder of His forever love.

Psalm 139 Out of Order (and paraphrased)
v5 You have placed your hand of blessing upon my head

EVEN THOUGH:
v1 You look straight into my heart and know the exact truth about who I am;

v2 You see my every action and know everything that crosses my mind;

v3 You always know where I am (and you sometimes go with me places that You wouldn't choose for me because you will NEVER leave me!); and

v4You've already heard what I'm going to say, even before it leaves my mouth.

THEREFORE:
v6 I'm overwhelmed with the knowledge that you CHOOSE to bless me in spite of knowing the TRUTH about who I really am, and what I really do and say. I can't understand the half of your merciful, gracious character!
Are you living with regrets today, friend? Find forgiveness, but then move on in joy knowing that you are the apple of His eye, He loves you with an everlasting love and His hand of blessing is upon you!

I read this passage in a wedding a few weeks ago and almost couldn't get through it because it is so powerful to me. Thank God for grace!
