Psalm 139 is a great one to read on one’s birthday, as my sister suggested several years ago. I did this yesterday. That, together with a song I heard in the morning (“It’s so nice to get to know you as my Friend”) warmed my heart with God’s love in a special way on my special day.
In the Bible I’m marking up for my granddaughter, I made the following notations on this Psalm:
Verses 1-6 God sees and knows me completely. He is all-knowing. I must be transparent.
Verses 7-12 God is with me continuously. He is all-present. I am secure.
Verses 13-16 God made me marvelously and planned out every day of my life. He is all-powerful. I am special.
Verses 17-18 God keeps me in His loving thoughts and in His presence. I am overwhelmed!
