Have you ever felt all alone in the world: Lost and fearful of what will happen next? Does the sheer scope of what is before you seem overwhelming and you feel SO SMALL? To some degree, this is common to us all, for we all were once small and under the authority of others. Even when we grew, there were still those who we obeyed and as government grows and grows, restrictions encroach upon our daily lives. Yet, with God we are never really alone. He is ALWAYS WITH US as this beautiful passage from the Psalms shows...
WEB: Psalms Chapter 139
 Yahweh, you have searched me,
and you know me.
 You know my sitting down and my rising up.
You perceive my thoughts from afar.
 You search out my path and my lying down,
and are acquainted with all my ways.
 For there is not a word on my tongue,
but, behold, Yahweh, you know it altogether.
 You hem me in behind and before.
You laid your hand on me.
 This knowledge is beyond me.
I can’t attain it.
 Where could I go from your Spirit?
Or where could I flee from your presence?
 If I ascend up into heaven, you are there.
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there!
 If I take the wings of the dawn,
and settle in the uttermost parts of the sea;
 Even there your hand will lead me,
and your right hand will hold me.
 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me;
the light around me will be night;”
 even the darkness doesn’t hide from you,
but the night shines as the day.
The darkness is like light to you.
 For you formed my inmost being.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
 I will give thanks to you,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful.
My soul knows that very well.
 My frame wasn’t hidden from you,
when I was made in secret,
woven together in the depths of the earth.
 Your eyes saw my body.
In your book they were all written,
the days that were ordained for me,
when as yet there were none of them.
 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is their sum!
 If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand.
When I wake up, I am still with you.
Children grow up and move away, spouses die and our health eventually fails and we no longer exist upon this green Earth. But GOD is always with us and knows our every desire, every thought, every action we have ever had and still loves us. And still loves, what a thought!!! We are never alone, no matter what the circumstances, for our loving God is there and will be forever. Somehow the world just became smaller and a more friendly place.
