Sabbath Keeping

~ God knows you by name ~
God is speaking, directly, to you and calling you by name; copy and print this love letter from God and write your name in the ____ spaces.

I, the Lord, have searched you, ______, and know you. I know when you sit and when you rise; I know your thoughts before you even think them. ______, I know when you go out, when you sleep and am totally familiar with all your ways! Before you speak, ______, I, the Lord, know what you're going to say. I am with you, completely, and I go before and come after, keeping you, always, in My love; I hold you in My righteous right hand. I, the Lord, know all there is to know about you, yet I love you...still.

______, you cannot hide from My Spirit nor can you run from My presence. It is simply not possible. Should you go to the heavens, I, the Lord, am there. Or, if you go to the depths of the sea or depression or any other depths, I, the Lord, am also there. ______, I was there before you, waiting. If you rise at dawn or settle on the far side of the sea, I, the Lord, am there and will yet guide you. I, the Lord, hold you, ______, always, in my righteous right hand. ______, you may say, the darkness will hide me and the light is the same as the dark but just because you say it, doesn't make it true. I, the Lord, consider dark as light and because I am Light, there is no darkness to Me.

______, I, the Lord, created you and, before you were in your Mother's womb, I knew all about you. You were not hidden from me, not then and not now. All your days have been ordained by me and I, the Lord, know them all. ______, you are fearfully and wonderfully made because you are My beloved creation. If you learn nothing else as you live this wonderful life I have given you...know these things: I am the Lord God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth and I love you, ______, so much I sent My Son to die in your place. Why? Because I want you to return to Heaven and live with me through Eternity. 

______, I know My thoughts are vast and you cannot truly comprehend them but choose to love Me; I will always take care of you. I, the Lord, care for you because I created you and I love you. I know your heart and all your anxious thoughts; I love you, still. ______, love me; 
I, the Lord, can be trusted with your heart.

    Oh Sandra....this is so powerful and comforting. I love this. Words to remember each hour of each day.
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us..

    Bless you and Dave,

    ~Let FREEDOM Ring!~

  3. Hello Sandra and Dave:
    What a wonderful way to personalise the Word of God. Somehow, just by including the name, the messages are so much more powerful. What an inspirational climax, knowing that God can be trusted with one's heart.

  4. Thank you for this post!!! I love Psalms...but I've never read Psalms 139 this way...:o)♥!

  5. My niece sent this poem to me many moons ago and I was glad to read it again. Thanks for sharing. LJ

  6. Thank you, Sandra! I printed and am sharing with ladies at church!

  7. It's always a joy to personalize Scripture! Thanks for the reminder!

  8. I just printed out several of these!
    I love this...On my not-so-good days, things like this give me great comfort.
    I hope you are not under three feet of snow like so many other Virginians!
    Watching the news last night I had to ask,
    "A tad early, isn't it God?"!!!

  9. that is just beautiful! may the good Lord bless and watch over you and your husband! have a peaceful Sabbath!

    Beautifully done... Psalm 139 is one of my favorite passages of Scripture... I am so thankful that He knows each one of us so intimately.

  11. This is a great idea thanks for sharing

  12. sweet sandra,

    i never wanted to presume when dave
    was so sick. he is on my prayer list each

    would you include my family? just lea's
    family on yours? i feel that any woman,
    who has such strength, should be
    praying for mine.

    thank you so much.

  13. Sandra-

    Wow. And wonderful. Thank you for holding us up in your prayers. Each dawn as I sit on the deck you and Dave are in mine. I will be honored to share this touching and mindful verse with many.

  14. It thrills my heart this post has been helpful to you all; that was my prayer when I was writing it. I take seriously, very seriously, the admonition of God, in Revelation, to not add nor subtract anything from His word. My plea is that I have honored Him and helped you, Sisters in Christ.
    Thank you for your prayers; we are in sore need of them.
    God's blessings on each of you, and your family, as need arises.

  15. I was just checking in with you about the swap. I hope it was wonderful and encouraging. Thanks so much for playing along with year. I always have such a good time watching people make new friends.

  16. I love this Psalm very much! The deer is beautiful, it reminds me of the deer in the Spiritual Canticle of John of the Cross.

  17. wonderful way to view scripture since it IS a letter from our Father to us. Thank you as always - praying for you and grateful for your prayers.

  18. This just touches my heart! blessings,Kathleen

  19. Adding our name sure does make Scripture so much more personal. This is a precious post :)

  20. I really enjoyed reading the posts on your blog. I would like to invite you to come on over to my blog and check it out. God's blessings. Lloyd
