I’m reminded today of Psalm 23 for those who fell discouraged. This is like a prayer read it aloud I love this psalm.
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 loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwelling the house of the Lord forever.
The words of this psalm are so beautiful and it reminds us that no matter where you are in your life, that God leads us to quiet waters. He restores our souls and guides us in the path of righteousness. We don’t have to fear anything as God is always with us. His rod and staff they comfort me. Surely and goodness will follow me all my days and when I’m with the Lord I will be with Him forever. What great amazing promises are these for us. So no matter where you are today even if you feel discouraged reach out to Him today. This psalm is like a prayer for me. He’s got us even if we can’t see Him or feel Him.
He loves us no matter what we have done or even if we feel as though we can’t forgive ourselves. He’s watching out over us. I love so much He restores our soul. As a person who used to be caught in addiction wow this is such an amazing gift to know. Don’t let shame bring you down. Shame and guilt can cripple your soul. You are beautiful in His eyes. Even if you don’t feel like that now. It took me a long time to be able to look in the mirror and love what I saw. There is freedom from addiction. I never ever thought I would have three years from it. If your tired of running or just feeling done. Find someone to talk to. Reach out to a friend. I found a Christian counselor someone to walk this journey on. I unpacked tons of crap from my life. I wanted to be well. I was tired of masking the pain and stuffing it down deep. I was so done. You to can be free. Reach out today. God has this and so do you. ❤️ Don’t be discouraged.
