Instructions: Read the entire Chapter of Psalm 139 below and answer the reflection question in at least 3 complete sentences. Post your reflection by a leaving a reply at the very of this blog entry.

O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know [a]when I sit down and [b]when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
You [c]scrutinize my [d]path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
[e]Even before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O Lord, You know it all.
You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in [f]Sheol, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will [g]overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even the darkness is not dark [h]to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.

13 For You formed my [i]inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for [j]I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My [k]frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.

19 O that You would slay the wicked, O God;
Depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.
20 For they speak [l]against You wickedly,
And Your enemies [m]take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate those who hate You, O Lord?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with the utmost hatred;
They have become my enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
24 And see if there be any [n]hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.

    When you succeed in something, you feel god’s presence.I know this because whenever I accomplish something, I thank God, and I sometimes think that he’s saying something back.
    You also feel god’s presence in your friends, because if they are really your friends, they always try to support you and make you feel better if something bad happens to you, just as God does.

    God is really in our everyday lives, he helps us by protecting us from people who are wicked. I also feel that in the verse that the person hates who ever hated God or said his name in vain. This verses also show me that I’m nothing without Gods help.

    Whenever I feel happy with something I get or do I could feel God’s presence. I could also feel God’s presence everytime I do something wrong or someone getting mad at me because God is there to strengthen me in whatever. i need to face.

    The time i feel him is when i kost need him like when i am depressed. I may not see him or hear him but i can feel and i beleive that he is really beside me. This article by psalms is very much true because what psalm said about God and my enemies all relate to me because the paragraph itself is a small description of my life.

  11. From the moment when a child was born the feeling of hope and new life comes. Every moment you take from there is happiness. One reality where the parents knows God is helping in raising the child. Even if one family dies they would know God will guide the child to the path they have hoped for him. The reality where you realize your life is the moment God has awakened you from the deep sleep your whre at and you can believe that he is the one who helped you. The moment where hard times come the hearts of yourself becomes hard and tough and you begin to hate everything but, we need to know God is there waiting outside the door of your soul and heart waiting for you.

    I can always feel God being with me. God is always with us, He is not just with us be He is one with us. The Triune God is not for us to understand but for us to enjoy! He has set before us life and death, blessing and curse and we should choose life so that our seed may live. We should choose life so that our seed would live! The seed signifies Christ.

    Some concrete, tangible and realities that we can feel God’s presence is where in you are asking for help on what to do or guidance from him. Another time where I can feel Gods presence is when I goto church and take communion. I can feel gods presence because he is the bread of life.

    I feel god’s presence when I hear mass. I feel his presence when I am happy and when I’m enjoying, but I also feel his presence when I am down and lonely because I know he is always there to cheer me up.

    We sin, it’s a fact. Sin’s are one of the reasons people are blinded from God’s existence. God will forgive and understand our wrong doings. But remember to not abuse such privelage. I know God does exist, he’s quite visible to me as I pray or when I go to Church.

    A Concrete Examples where God is present are our parents. This is because through them ( Also God’s Creations) , they give us all the tangible and intangible necessities in order for us to survive and sometimes even more than what we need such as our education, food, love, a house to live in, clothes to wear, and countless more.

    Some realities in life give praise to God for how complex and wonderful it was. First of all, one of them is the human body. The human body is very intricate and precious and very complex. It is amazing that God could create such an intricate system and at the same time supporting and convenient. There is also the Bible; the Bible is the center of God’s Word. As Christians, we know this to be true because of faith, but for those who do not believe in the Bible, I say, some events are proven to be true. There is also good parents. I really admire my parents, and having them in my life existing and caring for me, shows that God is guiding him and he does exist.
    God is very great and awesome and in these we can know and feel His presence

    Whatever action we do God will always be there. You might have just woken up, you might be eating or might be watching tv. But God is always there no matter what. We feel his presence more when we are happy and when we’re sad we feel like he isn’t there. But even if we think that, he actually is still there.

    I feel God’s presence whenever I am in a church or chapel and I know that he is watching me. Just by a slight tingle and vulnerability, I can feel that God is with me.

    It was at a mall when i was 5 i wasnt realy caring about name of the mall because i was not street smart yet. So what happend was i was circling some shelfiings with some yarn my mom was gonna buy for my sis the on the 13th circle i found them to have disappeared so i was yell “mom” out but she was nowhere to be found (from where i can see) and this kind old man dressed in beige assisted me and we then found my dad, so after that i that in that man was God so when ever i hear that people were lost or abandoned, this is what plays in my head

    I feel Gods presence when I’m scared. when I’m scared, I repeat Psalm 23:4 “Even when I walk through a dark valley, I shall fear no harm for you are at my side. Your rod and your staff guides me, It comforts me” Whenever I repeat that verse to myself, I always calm down and and I won’t get scared anymore. I have this feeling that God is with me, Protecting me and helping me.
