Psalm 139: 13-18
13 For it was you who formed my inward parts;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
that I know very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes beheld my unformed substance.
In your book were written
all the days that were formed for me,
when none of them as yet existed.
17 How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 I try to count them—they are more than the sand;
I come to the end—I am still with you.
When the semester begins, you are still with me.
When the questions are overwhelming, you are still with me.
When the meals are eaten, you are still with me.
When the conversation sparks transformation, you are still with me.
When joy is experienced, you are still with me.
When the day ends, you are still with me.
