I shall not want.

 The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
 He lets me rest in green meadows;
  he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.

He guides me along right paths,
  bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
  through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
  protect and comfort
5 You prepare a feast for me
  in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
  My cup overflows with blessings.
 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me

  all the days of my life,
I will live in the house of the Lord

Psalm 23 (NLT)

  1. Love it. My s-i-l just back from Jerusalem shared that the word used for “follow” or “persue” is not a casual following. It is actually a strong word for chasing down and capturing. Man! I want to be tackled by His love and goodness!!

  2. I DO feel lots better! Thank you for the refreshing word that reminds me, God is mindful of me, and wants to show us how much He loves us!
    Great blog!

  3. its a shame we reserve this psalm for funerals….its so about life!

  4. Who wouldn’t feel better after meditating on this. So encouraging and comforting.
