Verse: Psalm 139
1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. 5 You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to [b] me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. 19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men! 20 They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you? 22 I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
We are FINALLY underway with Vida Nueva #3. I am very excited about all that God has already done and will do through each of you WONDERFUL ladies. We will be focusing on the part of Psalm 139 that says, "I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Just so you can start planning ahead, we will be using sheep, lambs, and Jesus as the Shepherd as part of our theme. We have lready had a blast finding all of the after Easter sales sheep everywhere. We figured there wouldn't be too many sheep out in the fall with all the Halloween junk. So you can start your palanca parties ladies! We now have our 3 Spiritual Directors. Rev. Noriega from Idlewild Central, Randy Evans from Grace Christian Fellowship, and David Brantley from Texas. I know that none of you probably know David, but he helped start Tres Dias in Tampa and is is from the area too. You'll love him also. I will not be choosing the team until school is out. I am really praying about where God wants you. I don't want to put people where I want them, but where God wants them. I have been talking to a few ladies about Head positions and then we will plug all of you in. So you be praying too. I really need it. I'll keep you informed.
