Running Thoughts

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Psalm 139--A Song--I love how God uses music to encourage and remind me so I thought of these scriptures as I heard the song "You See Me Beautiful" on my iPod during my morning run:

O Lord, you have searched me
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O Lord.
5 You hem me in —behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths,[a] you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to[b] me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.
19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God!
Away from me, you bloodthirsty men!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord,
and abhor those who rise up against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

And the lyrics to the song that reminded me of this scripture:

You see me differently
Than I've ever seen myself
You hear me clearly
When I haven't spoken

You see the world differently
All the places that you call home
You hear the song clearly
Before it is written

I wake from a dream when I run from the doubt
But you say I don't know what I'm talking about
This time that I keep myself from flying

Inside I'm dying
I hide from the light
But you see me beautiful
You see me beautiful
I roar like a lion
An unlovable sight
But you see me beautiful
You see me

And the morning's another day
Twisting, dodging the drops of rain
Now, I know what I want to be
It's what you already see

Inside I'm dying
I hide from the light
But you see me beautiful
You see
I roar like a lion
An unlovable sight
But you see me beautiful
You make me beautiful
You make me, you make me beautiful
You make me, you make me
