Every Time God Thinks of You

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! --- Psalms 139:16-17

Before I got to know God as intimately as I do now, I used to think He was far away somewhere doing something for somebody else all the time, and it was only when I thought of Him that perhaps He might be lingering nearby. But over time and in different ways He helped me to understand that He is always around me, and He comes to my mind on purpose - not because I think of Him on my own - but because He is thinking of me first. God makes Himself known to me in ways I cannot deny He is real and is thinking about me every moment of every day. When I fell in love with God, He transformed my way of thinking and believing so that I know without a doubt He is not out there somewhere lingering nearby. He is closest to me, and He reminds me daily that every time I think of Him, He's with me in my heart. Even when God is not the focus point of our thoughts, we are the focus point of His thoughts. Meditate on this throughout the day knowing that God is thinking about you even when you may not have Him on your mind.
