Safe in the sea

I imagine I am one of millions who have found comfort in Psalm 139, but I would still like to share how perfectly this particular psalm once met my need.

I had agreed to go scuba diving with my husband on a Bermuda vacation. Part of the draw for us at that time, since I had never taken any scuba classes, was that Bermuda did not require a scuba license for divers. My husband had a certificate from college and felt both excited and prepared for the dive. I didn’t.

The day of the dive, I became almost paralyzed with fear that I would somehow not be able to stop myself from making a dangerous mistake once I was down below the surface. Adding to that panic was the fact that I did not want to tell my husband of my fears and disappoint him.
