You Are There


“7Where 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,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.”

Psalm 139:7-10

This week, Lorie is in Tucson. Yesterday evening, I came in from work, fed the dogs, ate some dinner and then spent an hour on the rebuild of our privacy fence. Afterwards, I went for a run, before coming back and working out. We really enjoy our new home and neighborhood. I have a certain trek that takes me around the park and pond. It was a perfect day and running on the path through the trees around the park I felt God’s presence (no intended rip-off of Chariots of Fire dialogue). While running, I began to think of all my blessings. I can truly relate to David’s words, “My cup overflows.” I am owed nothing and I deserve nothing; God is just loving, and merciful, and gracious beyond imagination.

When I got home, Psalm 139 came to mind. The depth and beauty of the Psalmist’s words. Wherever I go, God is with me.
