After an cool afternoon at the waters edge at a California beach two summers ago, I turned toward the parking lot and prepared to trudge through the expanse of sand to get there. It seemed like a million miles to me because walking through sand is not easy (or enjoyable when your loaded down with all your stuff).
As I walked through the countless grains of sand and felt them give under my feet, I thought of Psalm 139: 17-18:
“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!”
More than you can imagine,
deeper than you can understand,
higher than you can reach,
farther ahead than you can plan,
filled with more love than you
think is possible, God is
thinking about you.
He knows you. He knows all your weaknesses, brokenness and faults- and loves you completely.
Put your trust in Jesus and be brave today.
God knows what is going on and how help you through it.
