When I was in high school I had to give a speech and the requirement was to quote a certain number of lines in a poem. I asked permission to quote the bible because to me it is the most beautiful of all poetic works. At the time I didn't have a favorite passage, so I asked my mom and she told me that Psalms 139 was always a favorite of hers. So I read it and it literally spoke to me. It was all about God's love for me and how nothing could ever separate me from Him. It was revolutionary. Why isn't everybody talking about this chapter? The last few scriptures really became a prayer for me and as I meditated and studied for my "speech" it was these words that became my heart cry.
Search me, O God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
That is still my prayer today. The testing part is scary, but how else are we supposed to grow? Do you have a favorite scripture? If so please share. I would love to hear it!
Have a blessed day!
