You were woven with purpose.

O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts
even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.

You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing
on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful
for me, too great for me to understand!

I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away
from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave, you are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.

I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—
but even in darkness
I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.

You made all the delicate,
inner parts of my body
and knit me together
in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me
so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—
how well I know it.

You watched me
as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together
in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.

Every day of my life
was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts
about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!

Psalm 139:1-18
