Psalm 23

Yesterday, one of my Scripture readings was an old and familiar passage--Psalm 23.

Psalm 23 (NIV)
A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2     He makes me lie down in green pastures,
    he leads me beside quiet waters,
3     he refreshes my soul.
    He guides me along the right paths
      for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
      through the darkest valley,
    I will fear no evil,
      for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
      they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
      in the presence of my enemies.
    You anoint my head with oil;
      my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
      all the days of my life,
    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

Yesterday, today, this week, I lean into this again.
Oh Jesus, once again, still, be my Shepherd.
Lead me beside your quiet waters.
Let me soul find rest in green pastures.
Please, restore my weary soul. (Oh, THANK YOU that You will!)
Thank You, that You are guiding me.
Even though I'm not completely sure where I am, You are.
And that is enough.
