Psalm 139: 7-12 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
This passage is one that truly transcends my own cognitive thinking, and has been a scripture of great comfort through some pretty difficult and unstable years. Now, once again, the Spirit reminds us that no matter where life leads, even if we descend into hell itself, the Spirit of God is not leaving us. God's is always with us - guiding, directing and keeping us along life’s path.
The following is an older gospel song from my upbringing. It reminds me of God’s continuing presence through every circumstance. As with most good songs, it helps me to see a broader picture beyond my own understanding; and that in the end, all things will be made right and whole - perfect union and peace with our eternal, loving God.
