O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
Psalm 139: 1-5
You know me! I’m not alone on this parenting journey. Thank you for knowing my days, for being intimately acquainted with all my ways, for surrounding me, and laying your hand of love and not judgment upon me. Thank you for your everlasting covenant-love to me. Because of these things, please help me to rejoice in each day you’ve given me. Help me to serve you no matter what the day brings and be so in love with you that all the stress slips away and only love overflows to those around me.
