The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth 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 thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 

 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 

 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.  (Psalm 23, KJV)

Waiting

Having an injury or illness mandates much waiting, much stillness, much hoping and praying.  I am truly seeing what it is to wait for the Lord, to wait to see the mounting up with wings like eagles.  In my oh-too-human moments, I doubt and fear and fret.  But it is a promise….people who wait upon the Lord shall and will mount up with wings like eagles, we will walk and not grow faint A promise, a sure hope.  And that brings me past my human self for a time, to see the bigger thing that God wants me to see.  He’s there, He’s always with me, He never leaves me, and He will carry me through. So thank you, God, for the waiting.  It’s been good.  Blessings to all of you who are also waiting.  Slainte, Lisa
