The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
I was laid off from my job, and so on this particular day I had nowhere to go. I had been running, spinning, and working so hard to try and keep everything together and moving in the right direction, and suddenly I was still. I had no schedule, no alarm, and all was quiet.
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Even 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.
And then I heard Him...
Good Shepherd whispered my name deep within my heart. He reminded me of my young wandering seed and the choice...velcro or the cart. The wandering seed was me too.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies,
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
In the quiet, stillness of the cart, I spoke up, "Oh Good Shepherd, I want to be velcroed to Your side. Thank You for searching me out. Thank You for calling my name with JOY, and thank You for velcro."
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Thank You, new and old friends, and family for sharing the journey over these 31 days. Thank you for your encouragement, for reading along, and most of all to STFM for putting up with all the long nights of typing and leaving "the stuff" undone!
I'm so grateful for all you fellow sojourners; it's so much more fun to adventure on the journey together - arm in arm - on tiptoes of anticipation to see the greatness of our King!
Blessings of GREAT JOY on your amazing adventure journey with Jesus!
