“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s
womb.  I will praise You, for I am
fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul
knows very well.  My frame was not hidden
from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts
of the earth.”  (Psalm 138:13-15)

The Lord knows how we are knit
together.  The Lord knows all that we are
and ever will be.  He knows the inner
secrets, thoughts and desires we have. 
He knows who we are.  By the also
knows the plans He has for us and will not stop short of what is needed to
bring us from where we are to where we need to be.  Come then and dwell willingly in the presence
of the Lord.

Lord, help me to understand these things simply.  Guide me according to Your goodness to see
that only in You is there hope and a future. 
Lead me through the things that distract me that I would cherish
dwelling always in Your presence.  Lift
me up that I may become like Christ as is promised in Your Word.  Guide me to be thankful in all things as You
accomplish my completion.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You
have come to lead the way of salvation. 
Guide me today and every day, for you know all that is needed.  Let me not be hindered by the obstacles that
come my way but see through them, for You are creating in me a right and clean
heart.  May I learn from You how to live
obediently in the will of the Heavenly Father. 
Thank You for Your guidance.
