They are simple words. But they hold so much truth. Earlier today, I remembered them - the words from the Psalms that I first read at the age of 10 when I received a little gift book with beautiful watercolor pictures. The truth sunk in back then, and it rose to the surface of my heart today as a sweet reminder of His love. It's been on my heart all day. And as the Lord would have it, one of my best childhood friends sent it to me tonight as a reminder. I love how God works.
May it encourage you too, friend. In whatever you are walking through this week.
"The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters.
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths, for His name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and your staff , they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
