Learning To Rest In Him

Reflecting and personalizing Psalm 23 today.

The Lord is my Shephard: He leads me 2 good pasture where I find good things to feed myself spiritually, emotionally & physically.

I shall not want: With God leading me He will lead me to where I will be filled. I will not want for any good thing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures: He leads me to rest where I will be surrounded by things that nourish me.

He leads me beside still waters: He leads me past the storms & tempest to a place of peace & tranquility.

He restores my soul: God will not leave me fragmented and unresolved. He completes the work of making me whole.

He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake: He makes me right with Himself to show His goodness 2 the world.

Even though I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me: I have nothing to fear, period.

Your rod & your staff, they comfort me. His correction and leadership make me feel secure, surrounded and loved.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; He will frustrate my enemies with his blatant care for me.

You anoint my head with oil: my cup overflows: He fills me with Himself and all of His virtues until I can’t contain it all!

Surely goodness & mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: God will never leave me, He will follow me all of my life.

And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever: I have an eternal home. I will spend time with the Lord forever.

Your turn! Make it your own…
