The Daily Nosh: Psalms 139:13

For you have created my conscience. You knit me together in my mother’s womb. (TLV) 



The human being is both physical and spiritual. The conscience is our non-physical sense of right and wrong. God is here described as knitting or carefully combining together our physical and spiritual elements. Knitting and sowing is a slow and meticulous process. I find it very comforting and healing to meditate on how intimately God knows me and has been involved in knitting together and shaping my life (as David says) from the second I was formed in the womb.
