I have read Psalm 23 many many times. I just read it in the Message and some phrases jumped out at me. By the way this photo is an actual pool of water in my neighborhood, where I go often to read and pray.
A David Psalm
God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing. You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from. True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
When I go there with my Bible, a journal, and a pen, it is amazing the things He teaches me and shares with me. But the times I love the best are when I just sit and listen….totally quiet, waiting to hear from Him. He gives me time to catch my breath and rest for a few minutes in HIM! You may not have a pond, but find a spot to be quiet and catch your breath in this busy world! PEACE! JOY! Unfolding Grace at it’s best!
