He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Lord, in quietness and strength may I trust in You when the times are dark and I feel no joy. How thankful I am for Your goodness and love. Amen.
I spoke with Eric last night – he did not want to wait until Saturday to come to church (Larry invited him for Saturday). I let him know that if he needed to – call Larry and just talk with each other. God is granting me His peace during this time, I am not as stressed out about the “possibilities” as I was not rejoicing that God is drawing him closer, and Eric is responding to His call. I am now looking at this from God’s perspective and the opportunities that He will be providing Eric to bring Glory to God. Eric will have a very interesting testimony, and will bring passion to his relationship with God. God’s perspective moves mountains, and my initial reaction was very human. I am so thankful that God granted me a sneak peek for what He has in store.
A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
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 goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
