Have you ever felt as if no one cares?  People might surround you, but you can still feel lonely and empty inside.  Sometimes we are hurting on the inside, but we manage a good front and cover up the deep pain inside our heart.  

If you are that person today, and you feel depressed and undone let me share a few simple truths from a beautiful portion of the Bible. 

Psalm139: 1-6 says:

“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.

You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

What a comforting Psalm and here are some truths to take with you into the day.

1.     God knows where you live:  God knows when you sit and when you rise…He knows what you are thinking before you do.  God is so interested in your life that the trivial things like sitting and rising are in His sights and he cares about every one of your movements.

2.     God knows how you feel:  The Psalm says that He is familiar with all of your ways.  There is nothing about your life that God does not know and understand. He knows your thoughts and He hears every word you utter.  God is so intrinsically involved in your life that even your thoughts and the way you feel are important to Him.

3.     God is protecting you:  Isn’t it wonderful that the Psalm says that God ‘Hem{s} me in behind and before.”  God has your back!  He is watching over you.  If you feel that no one cares and you feel alone, let me assure you, you are wrong!  God cares!  He cares so much for you that He knows when you sit, stand, lie down and He even knows what you are going to say.  No wonder the Psalmist says; “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.”  To think that the King of the universe, the Creator of heaven and earth takes a personal interest in me, His creation, is amazing.

So my friend, as you start this day remember you are not alone.  Even if you feel alone, be assured God is right there with you.  He is so involved in your life that He knows your every step, your every breath and your every spoken word.  Let His love enfold you today!  Take heart, you are deeply loved by your heavenly Father.  Have a blessed day.

I am and always will be,

Recklessly abandoned, ruthlessly committed and in relentless pursuit of Jesus,
