God's Constant Presence

You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,"
Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day
Darkness and light are alike to You.
Psalm 139:5-12

O Lord, I am thankful that no matter where I am on this planet, You will be there - only a prayer away. I am so thankful that no matter what my spiritual state, - always faithful. What comfort in knowing that?! O Lord, I love You so! Create a heart that longs for your presence even more. Amen.
