A Peaceful Passage

Psalm 23

"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness 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 shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever."



Jon Foreman has a song {find it here}that is based on this chapter in the Bible. I wanted to pick out my favorite portion, but while reading it over and over again I realized it all gives me a sense of peace. My heart is full of God's love from this wonderful psalm, I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever! Thank you Jesus!
