It’s impossible to get away from God, no matter how hard or how far we run.  David knew that from experience.  After a lifetime of sometimes seeking and often avoiding the Lord, David, finally gave up the struggle.  His conclusion?  “You have encircled me.”


I’ve often been led to believe that God’s presence is a destination somewhere, and it’s up to me to travel to it.  “It’s over there,” they said.  “And you have to do this, this, and this in order to find it.”


Not so, according to David, and I heartily agree.  God is all around me, like a circle.
