The Lord is MY Shepherd From Psalms 23

Possession - The Lord is my shepherd

Provision - I shall not want

Position - He maketh me to lie down

Privilege - In green pastures

Preservation - He restoreth my soul

Progress - He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness

Peace - I will fear no evil

Presence - Thou art with me

Preparation - Thou preparest a table before me

Plenty - My cup runneth over

Pursuit - Goodness and mercy shall follow me

Prospect - I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever

Isn't it wonderful to see all the things our lord Jesus does
and is to us. He keeps us in all things and protects us
from the evil of this world, I never could repay him for
the most wonderful gift he ever give man kind, salvation.
Being God manifested in the flesh, and walked as man
draped in flesh he paid every debt I ever owed, the only
one who ever walked this earth without sinning, he was
here to please the father, in all things, we as Christians were
left after salvation to please the father too, in all things, we
do fall short many times, but then our great Shepherd comes
and picks us up and sends us on our way to obey, and
fullfill the commands of our lord. Have a such an obedient
Shepherd makes me want to serve and obey God even
more, to be more like Jesus daily. Have a very Blessed Day.
Pleasing the Shepherd, Obeying God,
In His loving care, Barbara ♥
