Psalms 139: 1-24 – God’s Complete Knowledge and Care
For me, Psalm 139 is the most beautiful Psalm meditating on the omnipresence of God that’s why I chose this.

Actually, I always thought of him as my secret friend who will always be at my back and will always get my back. Often when we are hurting, we feel very isolated and very lonely because we think that there is no one who love and care for us but then again, we are very wrong...
