being there

One of the things I am so thankful for is that God is here.  Yesterday, I wondered, do I act like I believe it?  I thought about that after a couple of colleagues reminded me that there is no need to stress out about things that are out of my control.

God is here.  I believe He sent Jesus to be our remedy, so that the Holy Spirit could come and we could have a new relationship with Him.  How can we share that with someone today?

"O Lord, you have searched me and know me
You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.
You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely.
You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain 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, you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast...

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts.  See if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way of everlasting."
-Psalm 139:1-10, 23-24
