The Lord is my Shepherd ~ That’s relationship!
I shall not want ~ That’s supply!
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ~ That’s rest!
He leadeth me beside the still waters ~ That’s refreshing!
He restoreth my soul ~ That’s healing!
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness ~ That’s guidance!
For His name’s sake ~ That’s purpose!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death ~ That’s testing!
I will fear no evil ~ That’s protection!
For thou art with me ~ That’s faithfulness!
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me ~ That’s discipline!
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ~ That’s hope!
Thou anointest my head with oil ~ That’s consecration!
My cup runneth over ~ That’s abundance!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ~ That’s blessing!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever ~ That’s Eternity!!!
My mom found this at my Grandparents place the other evening while we were there. I didn’t read it ’til a couple days later. And it just spoke to me. Often Ps. 23 is read at funerals, and knowing my Grandpa will be passing into Eternity any time, made it hit home really hard. My Grandpa has lived a full, and long life, but it doesn’t make it any easier to say ‘Good-bye’. He is leaving behind a wife, of 60+ years, 11 living Children (my namesake, died at 11 mths.), 60+ grandchildren and 90+ Great-grandchildren. (I’ll get exact counts later.) I am so Thankful we have Heaven to look forward too!!
