Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.


Stress and anxiety - two issues wreaking havoc on our society, and, likely at some point, our personal lives. David also experienced these troublesome emotional states, and we can learn from his heart-felt prayer. He invited God right into his anxious thoughts, knowing that God cares! He cares about our worries, the details of our thoughts, and ultimately the condition of our hearts.


Lord, you know my every thought and the condition of my heart, and you care for both deeply. Thank you for your love. I invite you into the details of my thoughts and concerns today, and ask that you correct and direct me toward everlasting life.
