He Finds Me

OK, I'm a little dazzled with technology.
When I am driving amidst thousands of other cars,
and the map lady finds me, I'm a little in awe of that.
How does she know that I'm not in the car ahead of me?
And when I make the teeniest turn in the wrong direction,
she announces that she is rerouting me.
Thank you map lady.
I have been traveling for the past weeks
and sometimes I have wondered if 
the Lord knows where I am.
I am not in my usual spot.
And then I read the psalms.

O Lord, You know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
    
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
    
and when I rest at home.
..    
You go before me and follow me.
 
Such knowledge is too great to understand!
I can never escape from Your Spirit!
    
I can never get away from Your presence!
Psalm 139
The map app is a constant reminder
of the Lord's faithfulness to us...
that He not only always knows where we are
but He knows everything about us.
If I am sensitive, I can hear HIm
continually giving me directions
and occasionally rerouting me.
He finds me even when
I'm not in my usual spot.
Technology may dazzle me,
but the faithfulness of the Lord
overwhelms and humbles me.
Thank You, Lord, for always finding me 
and loving me right where I am.
And thank You for sharing Your secrets
with the people that created those map apps.
I do love the practical applications
of Your great truths.

Such knowledge is too great to understand.
Lead me along the path of everlasting life.
