It’s Monday. Where did the weekend go?
Breathe in. Breathe out. And read…..
The Lord is my shepherd, a perfect shepherd. I’m but a stupid sheep. He leads me to water and food and places to be refreshed and rested. If I listen to Him I won’t get tired.
He not only provides for me physically, He restores my spirit when it’s down.
I need Him. He will tell me which way to go or not to go today. I need to trust. His ways keep me with Him.
Even though I walk through some scary days, grieving days, I won’t be alone. I have nothing to fear. He protects and guides me with His shepherd’s equipment. He loves me.
And He treats me like a special guest.
Even when the enemy of my soul is trying to pull me down. If I sit with Jesus, He will fill me up. He is the best host. His meal is amazing, and He pampers me giving me all I need after a hot dusty journey.
Even my cup is overflowing. Jesus is generous.
If He does this for me today, surely His love will pursue me every day of my life.
Today I choose to live with Jesus all the number of my days.
In the present.
(Psalm 23 according to the “Andy Lee with the help of a friend” version.)
