Lent Series ~ I cannot hide from You

This song is taken from Psalm 139 writen by David. It's a Psalm that has very familiar words. "Lord you have searched me and you know me". This will be a recurring theme for my thoughts as we go through Lent.
So often we put on a disguise to go through life.  The mask that hides our true feelings, attitudes and thoughts.  God see's straight through the mask.  He knew us before we were born, he knitted us together in our mothers womb's.  "all the days you ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." how then can we hide anything about ourselves from him .... we can't. 

You have looked into my heart
You know everything about me
You see my deepest thoughts
And every corner of my soul
Each single step I take
And all my words before I speak them
Every place that I have been
And every place that I will go

I cannot hide from You
You know me all too well
There's no story of my life
That Your memory could not tell
I can ride the morning wings
Till I'm completely out of view
But whether in dark or light
I cannot hide from You

Long before I drew first breath
You already knew my secrets
You watched as I was formed
Out of sight from human eyes
Your Spirit is with me
And I am always in Your presence
When I sit and when I stand
When I sleep and when I rise

Turn my heart from wicked ways
Search the whispers of my mind
And lead me on the road
That will take me home
To everlasting life

Take off your mask, be the beautiful person God made you to be.
