Biblical Guidance

"You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar..." How I wish such thoughts were more wise and less were abjectly bizarre "Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely..." And how I wish before it was flung You would help me speak more sweetly "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb..." I know I'm not here just for sight-seeing or to walk around in a costume "My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place..." I patiently wait for the next breakthrough Surrounded by Your mercy and Your grace "Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts..." I pray for the comfort only you can impart Help me untangle this life full of knots All quoted lines come from The Bible in Psalm 139 New International Version
