To Whom Shall We Go...a shared post

This post write up is excellent. I'd like to share it with you today if you will.

I myself have suffered loss. You can read more about this on my watering wells of hope blog
under the title STEPHEN. You can also click on labels if you like for specific helps.

GOD is our only help in time of such great need. He alone is the ONE who knows it all. The suffering, the heartache, the pain...and the lack of understanding by others. No one knows us like our maker...the GOD of ALl creation.

Please read this Psalm. I read this so often in my fiery trial of faith...and found such comfort. I italicized the verse that meant so much to me.

Psalm 139:1-18
O LORD, though hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
Yes, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness
and the light are both alike to thee.
For thou has possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in
the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members
were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O GOD!
how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with thee.

Sometimes words are not enough from others...nor from our own lips.
Praise GOD he knows the heart! He knows the depths of despair and he knows our desires. Let them be right before HIM and let HIM have his perfect will in your lives.

I can assure you..Romans 8:28 is always true to those who know the LORD Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. Who know the trust that comes by pure FAITH in his work.

I pray THIS IS THE are encouraged to seek HIM..for whom shall you go?

Wow, this is the second psalm a friend posted that is special to me. LOVE Psalm 139! He knows all about us. He is omnipresent and omniscient! What a great God He is!
