Highs and Lows

We’re sitting today with Psalm 139.8:

If I ascend to heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there.

Though we often say God covers all time and space, we seldom consider what we’re saying. When life pushes us to extremes—when it’s altogether heavenly, when it’s a living hell—God remains abundantly present. At our very finest, we’ve not begun to scratch the surface of God’s immeasurable joy and goodness. At our very worst, we’ve not tapped out the enormity of God’s love and grace. God dwells in the mundane and the margins. And it’s often when life reaches its highest or lowest points that God becomes most vividly known to us.
