I am traveling back from Panama today and my wife wrote this personalized version of the 23rd Psalm before we left. It really helped me so I thought today; I would pass it on to you…
The Lord is my Shepherd… therefore I want for nothing.
Because He loves me, He supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory.
He makes me to lie down in lush green pastures along the banks of cool still waters, giving me rest and restoring my soul by the washing of the water of His word.
He has given me the robe of righteousness to keep me on the right path.
And though I walk through the dark valley, I have no fear of evil; I have no fear of death, for He is with me, always giving me confidence, strength and comfort.
He gives me great favor and causes me to triumph over my enemies.
His anointing over me fills my cup to overflow.
His goodness and His mercy follow me all the days of my life on Earth, and then I am privileged and abundantly blessed to live in His house forever.
I really like that. It puts the 23rd. Psalm in everyday language. Just like I use to always ask, “If it was true in Jesus’s day, how can I take that and apply it to my life today”.
Glad you like it Bill. It is very important to incorporated God’s Word in our daily life in a practical way. We are trained by it.
