The Investigation

Last evening we met with our group for dinner and some discussion time. One of the questions asked was: "Would your life change if you prayed Psalms 139: 23 everyday?"  My thought inside was "It will turn upside down!" This is Psalms 139: 23 in the Message:

"Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me;
Cross-examine and test me, get a clear picture of what I'm about;
See for yourself whether I've  done anything wrong-
then guide me on the road to eternal life."

I've been praying Psalms 139:23 for several months now, and I am here to say it works. I have felt investigated, cross-examined, tested, and guided!  My journey of God searching my heart has been a faith walk for me, a true learning experience.
 He has shown me how at times when I think my motives are in the right place, they are actually selfish and need some adjusting. He has continually assured me that He is with me, never to forsake me, abandon me, or allow harm to come to my soul. He has daily reminded me of the value of focusing on Him and truth. He has brought people into my life to speak truth and to gently bring me to places of trust and love, while at the same time examining with me the processes of my own journey. He has reassured me with lasting relationships here on earth, even when I am difficult to be with. His walk, His example to me, through this life journey, this investigation, is something I think is worth the ride.
Jesus, Thank you for loving me so much that You are investigating me. Thank you for guiding me on the road to eternal life. Say That Again to me today and every day!
