I love this sitemeter that I put on my blog a while back. It's sorta like having caller ID on your phone so you can see who's visited your blog. And believe me, I check it faithfully every day. I immediately recognize the ones who visit regularly, but then there are people who found the blog through a google search. Now, this has been one of the most interesting things about it for me. I love reading the search words people use to surf the internet. I've been surprised at how many people have done searches about some issue with their neighbor's dog and came across my blog that way. That's because I did a few posts about a situation with my neighbor's dog a while back. (For anyone who remembers that, everything is good with us and the neighbors and they aren't mad with us). Some others find my blog because they are looking for a prayer for their daughter and I had done one entitled A Prayer for My Daughter. I get a few who are looking for something about Rush of Fools since I have mentioned that group several times. But the search words I get the most excited about are the ones where people type in something about A Plea for Purging. I mean, I have had people from different countries like Brazil, Germany and tonight someone from Chile searching for A Plea for Purging. It just makes me happy to know that they are becoming known a little more so hopefully all this touring they're doing is paying off. But, back to the subject of the sitemeter, I've had a lot of fun with it and I know who you are, where you're located and what internet service you're using!
But with all that information I can get from the sitemeter, it's nothing compared to what God knows about me, you and every person in this world. He knows where we are every minute of the day, He knows what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong, He knows every thought in our minds and every emotion in our hearts, He knows how many hairs are on our heads and He knows when we'll take our last breath. It's comforting to me to know that God is always with me and He's watching my every move. He created us and He loves us.
Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. Psalm 139:1-4
