Focus for May: Intimate love
“Even before a word is on my tongue,
    behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
You hem me in, behind and before,
    and lay your hand upon me.
 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
    it is high; I cannot attain it.”
Psalm 139:4-6


How should the knowledge that God knows our thoughts before they are spoken and that he goes before and behind us change the way we should live our life?
