When I awake, I am still with Thee...

 "How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!"
 Psalm 139:17

Do you ever read a verse that gives you so much comfort? Well, this past week I was overwhelmed with the verse in Psalm 139... a verse I mentioned in my previous post. 

Even when I awake,  I am still with Thee... Psalm 139:18

Such comfort the verse gave ... such peace. It has been a blanket of comfort and warmth for me these past several days... just to know my Father in heaven shall always be with me.

Yes, even while living here on this earth, in our physical bodies, our God shall encompass us... and what-more... even in the age to come... my God shall still with me be!

There's nothing to fear... when God is near... when our hope is in the One that changest not.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, ... shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." 
Romans 8:38,39

Once again, God gives great comfort through His precious Word... reminding us that  nothing shall separate us from His love.

His thoughts are precious to us. 
His ways marvelous. 
His love infinite. 

And so I rest in His love for me...

How Marvelous Are Thy Ways 

How precious are Thy thoughts to me,
Thou understandest and knowest me well. 
Even in my lying down, Thou art with me
And when I wake, Thou still with me dwell.

There is not a word on my tongue,
Each thought altogether known unto Thee.
Where shall I flee from Thy presence?
For Thou art with me e'en to the uttermost sea!

How marvelous are Thy ways, O Lord.
Even when darkness shall 'compass me,
Thy Hand will lead and guide me alway,
For night shall be as light unto Thee.

O Lord, I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
So skillfully wrought in the most secret of place.
All members in Thy book were written therein, 
Knowledge too wonderful, such marvelous grace!

  Thy thoughts more numerous than sand unto me,
Acquainted with all, Thou indeed art my King!
Search me, try me and know my heart today,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

May you be blessed by the Lord's promise... for He shall never leave, nor forsake us!


  1. That makes me think of the song "this world is not my home, I'm just a passing through!" What a comfort to know that we aren't stuck here in this fallen world, but rather passing through!! That HOME is with HIM!! I read a quote from another blogger, that said something like "In Christ, you're a Native of Heaven. Right now. You aren't a citizen of here trying to work into Heaven. You're a citizen of Heaven trying to work through here" What a great reminder! :-)

  2. Stephanie, Yes, what a beautiful reminder that we are just sojourners here... just passing through! What hope that one day we shall see Him face to face!

    Thanks so much for stopping by... your comments have been a blessing!
