The Lord Is My Shepherd

I took this picture one morning while in Virginia Beach for business one weekend.  The calm I experienced that morning on the beach cannot be adequately described with words.  I wanted to share this image with you, as well as a scripture to calm your heart this Monday afternoon.  No matter where you are or what you’re going through, you can whisper just one word to God and he will rush in on you, and your situation, with peace.  I know he will because it’s happened to me today.  Try reading this scripture aloud and see what happens to the atmosphere around you as you say each word with purpose.  You are loved.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, 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 runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
