“Lord, you have examined me and know all about me.
You know when I sit down and when I get up.
You know my thoughts before I think them.
You know where I go and where I lie down.
You know everything I do.
Lord, even before I say a word, you already know it.”
Some mornings in my quiet time, my mind races like a pebble barely skipping over the surface. I bow my heart low and let the hurry-cane pass over. I wait. And wait some more. God calms me. Waves of peace wash over me and I know he knows all about me. I don’t need to say anything.
I can just be—just me, sitting alone in his presence. That’s all. He knew every racing thought before it met me. That’s a comfort. And that’s enough.
Slow down. Wait and just be.
