Text Information:

Psalm 139 is one of the most introspective and most intimate of all the psalms, showing an acute mindfulness of God’s presence in all aspects of one’s life. Sometimes resisted, this omnipresence ultimately becomes a ground of hope, a promise that we never stray beyond God’s care.
