God's Wonder Woman

Psalm 139:1-6

1. O Lord, thou hast searched me and known me! 2. Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up; thou discernest my thoughts from afar. 3. Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4. Even before a word is on my tongue, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. 5. Thou dost beset me behind and before, and layest thy hand upon me. 6. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it.

These verses remind me of how I thought of my mother when I was a child. She seemed to not only have eyes in the back of her head, she also knew what I was thinking, and what I was about to say before I even formed the words in my mouth—at least 9 times out of ten! And of course, because she carried me in her womb, she did know me intimately—we were at one time one being, divinely planned, formed and nurtured by a loving God. And how did my father always know what was going to happen next on the television program we happened to be watching together? Now that I am a woman, with grown children of my own, I understand the source of that seeming omnipotent wisdom and fore-knowledge – it’s called life experience!

We still possess that piece of the divine that God placed in us at our creation. Too often, though, we realize our vision of that divinity, and our own divine purpose that transcends the here and now of carpools and grocery shopping, PTA meetings and all the other to-do list items that make up our day has been lost – or never even had a chance to develop.
