I love Psalm 139.
I received the precious gift of encouraging a friend today from the beauty of its verses and I want to encourage you also as "I think on these things."

God LOVES you.
God knows every hair on your head.
Read Psalm 139 and pause to consider the wonder of it.

Before "anyone" ever thought about you or wanted you,
God did.

Therefore He prepared you for Himself.
He shares "you" and His gifts within you with the world as a precious treasure revealed.
You are wanted,
You are His.

Through thick and thin, heartache and joy,
His hand shall lead you and His right hand shall hold you.
There is not a thought in you that catches God unaware.
For God sees us naked and has provided perfect covering.
A wedding garment at great cost and of spotless beauty.
A garment of hope and rest.
A robe of righteousness.

There is not a wound that He can not cure.
Whether the wound is fresh or old,
He is your Healer and your Provider.
I know the struggle is real
Yet, know that He is God,
be still and be healed.

Whether we need a heart hug or a total renovation. aka..new birth
God has provided for that.
You can be brand new.
There is nothing missing,
from His plan of redemption.
All the pieces are here
Resist no longer.
Submit to His care.

Allow God to place the last piece in your heart,
Jesus, our wholeness revealed.
Welcome Him and the King of glory shall come in.

Pause and consider.
Rejoice in the knowledge, that you are loved.
You did nothing to deserve it.
Yet you can receive it.

Will you?
God, the Creator of heaven and earth,
Loves you.


Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Psalm 24
