Lost & Found: Lessons from Psalm 139

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. Psalm 139:17-18 

Junk drawers often hold the best treasures. The other day, I found a hidden gem in my overflowing junk drawer, tucked inside a notebook full of recipes, sermon notes, and miscellaneous jottings.

If I knew who had said these inspiring words, I would give him (or her) credit. But unfortunately, I don't. I only know these simple thoughts are the answer to who we are and why we have worth in God's eyes.

Read Psalm 139 today and meditate on these four simple thoughts. I promise these truths will cause you to respond to life in a completely new way:

1. God KNOWS me. (verses 1-4)
2. He PROTECTS me. (verses 5-12)
3. He CREATED me. (verses 13-16)
4. He VALUES me. (verses 17-18)

You are precious in God's sight, my friend! You are His prized possession, created in His image. Trust Him with your life, and you will never regret it!


  1. I think it's incredible that God knew us before we even existed! This is a good chapter to read when studying anatomy in science, since the human body points to a creator.

  2. You're so right, Susan! Thanks for your thoughts -- I think I'll use this with my kids the next time we study the human body!
