Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

Psalm 139:7-10

Ever find yourself far from God? You didn’t mean to go there, but somehow, you just drifted away. You forgot to open your Bible. Forgot to pray or journal letters to him.

Pretty soon, you found yourself in a cold place—far from the warmth of his fire. And you start to worry. Will I ever be able to return to the friendship I had with him? Will I be able to find my way back?

You may become a little depressed, entering such a darkened place. Or maybe it’s a dark place that drew you away from your Father in the first place. But it doesn’t really matter. Either way, you’re in a place you desperately want to leave.

I’ve been in that place for the last while. But tonight I picked up my Bible and turned to Psalm 139. It’s one I’ve always found rich, describing feelings I can identify with. In this Psalm I found what I needed to hear—finding my way back.

Hope these words will help you too.
