How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. Psalm 139:17-18
The boys moved sand for hours yesterday. Hours.
Making piles, building walls, digging holes, stacking castles.
We searched for treasures and buried feet. There are countless activities to be discovered in the imagination of a child. Playing in sand is a summertime thrill no one really outgrows.
As I sat and watched them play, my head titled back under a straw hat, the Lord whispered to my soul….
“I think of you. More than all of this.”
I looked out, as far as my eye could see, well aware of my limited view of His creation from my blue beach chair.
“I think of you, more than every granule your boys are piling. More that every grain your feet have moved. More than all of this, Becky… I think of you.”
The idea took my breath away. How sweet of Him to remind me. In this moment. From this spot.
Wherever you are sitting right now, as you read from your side of this screen, He is thinking of you, too.
More than all of this.
Be encouraged today. If you feel forgotten by your God. If you feel distant. If sin or apathy has kept you far away. If life’s busyness has driven a wedge, or hardship has fallen hard…He is thinking of you. Still.
He never has stopped. Nor will He.
His thoughts of you outnumber the sand.
Sit and bask in this Truth today.
