When Shame and Guilt
completely flood me into hopelessness,
and unbearable measures.
I will lay flat in your presence.
For you’ll break me through,
and use me for your glory.
In Your presence I will Stay”
Psalm 139 7-13
Where could I go from Your Spirit?
Or where could I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend up into heaven,
You are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol
(the place of the dead),
behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning
or dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there shall Your hand lead me,
and Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say,
Surely the darkness shall cover me
and the night shall be
[the only] light about me,
Even the darkness hides nothing from You,
but the night shines as the day;
and the light are both alike to You.
For You did form my inward parts;
You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.
