Author requests article critique
NO ONE KNOWS ME LIKE YOU DO LORD
O Lord, You know all there is to know about me.
You know about whatever I’m doing and can read my mind.
You know why I do what I do and understand me better than I understand myself.
Before I have even opened my mouth, You’ve heard it all before.
Whichever way I look, You’re always one step ahead of me, looking out for me
Such intimate knowledge is hard to understand or appreciate – I know, I’ve tried.
If for some reason I wanted to avoid Your Spirit, where could I go?
If I flew out into space, you’d be waiting: if I hid underground, you’d be there.
Not even death is an escape.
If I could fly west with the sun, and disappear below the seas horizon, You’d be there also.
Wherever I am, Your right hand is outstretched inviting me to trust You.
Now, I realize there is no place to hide from You.
The darkness is as light to You, and even the night is as day.
For You made my existence possible, and have been watching my development from the time I was in my mother’s womb.
I have to say I am truly impressed by the shear magnitude of Your works.
You knew I was coming in all my intricacies and uniqueness even before my mother knew she was pregnant.
You could see the whole of my life with all its potential when I was only a name in Your book.
Your knowledge is beyond comprehension, immeasurable: so much so that all the grains of sand in the world cannot compare.
Awake or asleep, I am never alone and never forgotten.
O Lord, why don’t the guilty get what they deserve?
So many live as if You don’t exist or even matter;
They blame You for all the trouble and injustice in the world.
Surely, You wont let them get away with it?
Then I realized, without Your mercy we’re all in trouble.
Now, I rejoice that Your ways are not our ways, Your thoughts are not our thoughts, and Your heart is not as our hearts.
Search me, O Lord, and find the offensive ways in me.
Lead me away from them and into Your everlasting arms.
A paraphrase by Mark Trodd
