Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast. – Psalm 139:7-10
Sometimes I feel alone and I am not. Sometimes I try to be alone and I am not. I am never alone. Your Spirit is always there with me. This comforts me since so many people, even close people, cannot understand all my thoughts. You understand and you work with me. I am honored that you hang with me wherever I may wander. When you and I are walking together today, speak your truth into my soul and help me get done what you want done. Filter my dreams through your divine will. Weed out the selfishness. Replace hurt with healing, and anger with forgiveness. Replace doubt with trust and fear with courage. Make me what you have always wanted from a human being. Make me like your Son who was the perfect friend or like Abraham whom you called a friend. Make me like David who had a heart like yours. Make me something I would never be without your divine finger touching my soul.
