Song of the Shepherd

 

Psalm 23 (NKJV)

The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads 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 You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Forever.

 

I am just an ordinary sheep in desperate need of an extraordinary Shepherd. One who guides me step by step in life as I wonder aimlessly. One who fulfills my every need at every moment. One who gives me a sense of peace and comfort, even amidst the most difficult circumstances. One who encourages me and lifts my spirits when nothing seems to be going ‘right.’ One who helps me make the hard choices so that I stay on the straight and narrow path. One who takes away all my fears and never leaves me. One who has made me to be royalty. One whose “goodness and mercy” never runs dry. One who has given to me eternal life. There is only One that can satisfy such needs. That ONE is Jesus Christ Himself. He is all of this and so much more. Sheep without a shepherd cannot survive; nor can I without my Savior.
