==

Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends. 22A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 17:9,22

===

Generally speaking, a wise way to respond to an offensive word or action is to not tell other people about it. The relationship between even close friends might harmed if you unwisely bring others into the conflict.

==

My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them.

God knew you before you were born. God knew your life story. He formed you. He wrote your book, before you had breath – before anyone else saw you.

Worship this God. Trust this God.

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

Here’s one good reason for you to praise God:
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. And deep in your heart you know it and feel it.

God made you – he chose that you would exist – and you have the physical body that he built to be you.

Praise him for this.

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.

Psalm 139:9-10

There are times for all of us when we feel like we are flying and on top of things.

And we are being held by him.

O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.

We have a God who understands each of us and isn’t surprised by anything that happens to us.

In the meantime, know this: You are known by God.
