Each one of you has someone in your life that just gets you --- I mean really GETS YOU ... you know what I mean? They are the person that knows exactly what you are going to say before you say it, how you feel when you don't say it and they are surprised by the way that you act it any instance. You don't have to explain yourself to this person because they get you! On Grey's Anatomy Yang and Grey have, over the years, developed a relationship like the one that i have described for you, and they like to call this relationship being someones "Person".
I have had quite a few "person's " in my life depending on the season, and I have to say that there is so much comfort in knowing that you have a person. I would say that "My Person" is Aut. She is Yang and I am Grey ( or vice versa: depending on our lives ** minus the promiscuity ). We have a no explanations needed policy! There are times when ones of us needs the other and they are there... no questions ask! There is also an honesty that comes along with being someones person. Truth can be spoken freely without defensiveness or hurt feelings because you know that "your person" has your best interest at heart!
Anyways, Aut dropped by for a short period of time this week and it couldn't have been better. As you saw in my last post there is a lot going on right now in my life, but these past few days it has been great to just be able to hangout and just BE with Aut... no talking about how I feel and why I feel that way ( unless of course i wanted to ), what i am doing in my life right now or any of the million other questions that people who don't know you so well ask you.
Aut left this morning and as I was thinking to myself how much i was going to miss her this summer while she is gone, a thought came into my head ( blatantly obvious yet so sweetly put there by Jesus), I have a friend with me always that is more of a "person" than any person could ever be. He knows me better then I know myself and he is sovereign over my thoughts and words and life. I cant help but be comforted by that thought. Praise the Lord for his Son who died for my sin so that I would have a friend in the Lord and for the friends that help me along the way to eternity ! He is the man!
1 O LORD, you have searched me
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O LORD.
5 You hem me in—behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, [a] you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,"
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to [b] me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.
19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God!
Away from me, you bloodthirsty men!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD,
and abhor those who rise up against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
