The Great Shepherd

The 23rd PSALM – A New Approach 
The Lord is my Shepherd — THAT’S RELATIONSHIP! 
I shall not be in want — THAT’S SUPPLY!
He makes me lie down in green pastures, — THAT’S REST!
He leads me beside quiet waters, — THAT’S REFRESHMENT!
He restores my soul — THAT’S HEALING!
He guides me in paths of righteousness — THAT’S GUIDANCE!
For His name sake. — THAT’S PURPOSE!
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, — THAT’S TESTING!
I will fear no evil, — THAT’S PROTECTION!
For you are with me; — THAT’S FAITHFULNESS!
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. — THAT’S DISCIPLINE!
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies .— THAT’S HOPE!
You anoint my head with oil; — THAT’S CONSECRATION!
My cup overflows — THAT’S ABUNDANCE!
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, — THAT’S BLESSING!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord — THAT’S SECURITY!
Forever — THAT’S ETERNITY!!!!

~I love the 23 Psalm! This chapter in the Bible along with other great encouraging scriptures,reminds me of the fact that there’s really no need to worry when the Great Shepherd Himself has everything in my life under His control. Yes, I know sometimes there are situations in our lives that arise and we feel that we cannot hold on another day. But let me encourage you to keep holding on to God’s unchanging hand because He has confidence in you! If He brought you to it, He’ll bring you through it!-
