This weeks readings:

Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday.

1 Samuel 3:3-10

Psalm 139

1 Corinthians 6:13-15,17-20
John 1:43-51

Psalm 139

LORD, you have searched me out and known me; you know my sitting down and my rising up; you discern my thoughts from afar.

You trace my journeys and my resting-places and are acquainted with all my ways.

Indeed, there is not a word on my lips,but you, O LORD, know it altogether.

You press upon me behind and before and lay your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;it is so high that I cannot attain to it.

For you yourself created my inmost parts;you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I will thank you because I am marvelously made;your works are wonderful, and I know it well.

My body was not hidden from you, while I was being made in secret and woven in the depths of the earth.

What a beautiful Psalm and an expression of just how deep God’s love is for us – and for you.  God is always with us! He created us just the way we are and loves and cares for us.  Even when life seems down, maybe our health isn’t the best, or it seems like things around us are going poorly – know that God knows YOU and loves YOU!
