“Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful! God, I’ll never comprehend them! I couldn’t even begin to count them—any more than I could count the sand of the sea. Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!”
-Psalm 139:17-18 (MSG)
What do you think the Lord thinks about you? Sometimes it’s hard to know. When we make mistakes or really mess up in a relationship, we can feel like He’s kind of mad at us or at least disappointed. Or we can sometimes we can walk around feeling forgotten.
But think of it this way…if you pick up a handful of sand on the beach, could you count the grains of sand? How about the sand on the beach? Under the ocean? When you can count the very last grain of sand, the Lord will stop thinking precious thoughts about you. His thoughts toward you are so wonderful and so numerous that they outnumber the grains of sand. He thinks about you all the time! You are always on His mind. And He loves you so much.
