Psalms 139:13-18 ~ Spoke Volumes To Me

** I posted this yesterday on my Facebook but felt led to post it on my blog today. I am feeling better today but my heart is still very burdened for my loved one.**

As I am heavy hearted this morning....this passage of scripture ministered to me. You see, there is someone that I know and love dearly that is struggling to find their way in life. They know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior but I'm not sure they are seeking His face in these areas of their life.

I have tried to talk to them, give advise and guidance but I'm still not sure that it didn't fall on deaf ears. It breaks my heart to see another person suffering because the way life treats them sometimes. I can relate so well to their feelings, emotions and how I handled things in my past...some the right way and others the wrong way.

God has already been in our tomorrows and He knows exactly what lies ahead of us because He created us and He knew us before we were ever formed in our mother's womb.

This is what God's Word has to say:

13 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;you formed me in my mother's womb.

14 I thank you, High God--you're breathtaking!Body and soul, I am marvelously made!I worship in adoration--what a creation!

15 You know me inside and out,you know every bone in my body;You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,how I was sculpted from nothing into something.

16 Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;all the stages of my life were spread out before you,The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.

17 Your thoughts--how rare, how beautiful!God, I'll never comprehend them!

18 I couldn't even begin to count them--any more than I could count the sand of the sea.Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!I am so thankful that God knew me before I was ever born, while I was still in my mother's womb. That alone is awesome and hard to comprehend at times....verses 13-16.

But, my favorite part is that according to God's Word...he already had my life planned out according to His divine Will. Is that saying that I have to go the direction that God already has planned for me? "No" because God gave me a will, a choice and He will never force me to choose His ways or His plans for my life...verses 16-18.

Oh, how wonderful are His thoughts of us! He wants us to serve Him, love Him and He wants to bless us beyond our wildest dreams...He has nothing but good times and thoughts for His children.

How much easier would life be if we were to seek His face and His will rather than our own? There would be a lot less heartache, suffering and pain in our lives if we would just as for His guidance.

I am praying this for my special someone that they will seek God's face and be willing to hear His voice.

Are you facing a problem, a crossroad in your life, a situation that is out of your hands now...or maybe you know someone who is...PRAY, PRAY, PRAY and seek His face and His divine will for your life, family, job, situation or for your friends and family members. He hears our cries and is just waiting for us to come to Him for help. He will never force His help on us but He longs to come to our rescue and take care of ALL things we are in need of, concerned about...His way is perfect every time.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. Your loved one is very blessed to have you loving them, and praying for them sweetie.

  2. Amen, sister!! The answer is so simple, isn't it??

  3. Jennifer,

    It must be extremely difficult to see how this person just won't accept what you are offering, but have faith that God alone will open those doors for this person to see. It may not be you that leads him to God, but God will present plenty more opportunities to this person. Keeping you in prayers!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
