Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, You are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night," even the darkness is not dark to You; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with You.
Lord, I spent my days fleeing from Your presence, hiding from You, denying Your name, determined to be my own god. But You pursued me, sent the Hound of Heaven after me, brought me into Your Kingdom, transformed me from a life of darkness into a life bright with Your glorious light.
Praise You, my Lord and my Master.
