B is for Blessed

That's how I feel this morning. Normally, I'm not a "Monday-Morning" person. It's not generally my best day of the week. But this morning, I just felt particularly blessed and rejuvenated in my spirit.

Psalm 139 is probably my most favorite passage of Scripture and I thought of these verses today as I was driving and watching the sun come up through my rear view mirror. (Sunrises here in GP are particularly pretty - I think it's my favorite time of day)

"Where can I go from Your Spirit, or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven You are there. If  make my bed in hell, behold You are there. If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me and Your right hand shall hold me."  ~Psalm 139:7-10

That's a pretty powerful message. There is nowhere or any place that we can be or go that is out of God's hands or not in His purpose for us.  I sometimes struggle with feeling like I'm "in the right place" or "doing what I'm supposed to be doing" in life.  In those moments, these verses become very personal and I find great encouragement in them and the promise that they hold.

I love this topic for the letter B. I've always loved that verse, as well.

I'm glad you're feeling blessed today. I hope the rest of your week is just as blessed. :)
