Psalm 23

” The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lay down in green pastures, He leads me by quiet waters, He refreshes my soul, He guides me along the right path for his name sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil because you are with me, your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of thy enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely to goodness your love will follow me, all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

At church yesterday we talked about the Psalms which ones had meaning to us. I love the psalms a lot. I find it relaxing and a great comfort. Psalm 23 is a psalm I’ve used a lot when I was discouraged or depressed or just having a hard time. When life really kicks you down it’s a great comfort to know that I’m led to quiet waters and He refreshes my soul. My soul often needs to be refreshed to help me continue on the journey the Lord has provided. My body gets tired. He guides me on the right path that’s great. For a long time I traveled the hard road not always the right one. I made bad choices and decisions, but no matter what I chose God always brought me back to His path.

God has given me so much in my life. I would not be here today if it was not for Him. Even as a child when I cried out to Him, He was always there. He protected me from death many times. God’s faithfulness leads us through the dark valleys while He watches over us. His love is abounding for us and I know the Lord is always there no matter what. When I feel alone I cry out to the Lord and He sets me back on my path. He loves us all so much ❤️no matter where we have come from, no matter what we have done. Reach out to Him today, He is waiting for you to tell Him your needs and wants.
