23 PSALM

lamb-on-pasture-450x230 (2)

 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  
He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil;  My cup overflows.  Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm 23 Simplified

 

Because The Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need. He knows me better than I know myself.  At times when I am allowing life to wear me out, He knows I do not know when to settle myself, so He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me to quiet waters so I can regain strength.

He knows there are times my soul needs to be restored from situations and circumstances that have damaged the way I think and process life.  So, He guides me on the right path for His name sake, that I may accomplish His will and do the things which brings glory to Him.

Even though I walk through some valleys where dark shadows may seem to overtake me in life, I do not fear.  Because His rod and staff equally comfort me when I am in need of correction or direction.

God prepares what I need and my cup is never empty, I live in a state of perpetual blessings.  There is no place like His house where I choose to live, dwell and abide forever!

I am the sheep and He is my Shepherd, there is nothing I lack.
