Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 139:23-24

The psalm itself in its entirety is a frame of reference for the intimacy that God has with his creation, and yet, anxiety broods for the psalmist. Beyond the temporary refuge that salvation serves, there is an extended period of time, actually the whole duration of life, that needs saving.
