I have always looked at Psalm 23 as the conforting verse or the Sunday School chapter. “Look, we have a good shepherd” kind of a chapter. But it really speaks identity to me now.
A psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
In Him I am found, I am who he says I am and he really likes me!
2 He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.
A different wording-take Mirror word style:
Looking into the waters of reflection (still waters) we are suddenly reminded of who we are seeing by seeng our reflection (my original identity and redeemed innocence) (2 Cor 3:18 James 1:23-25)
3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.
He is my source and I am His glory!
4 Even when I walk through the darkest
valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
The revelation of He in me completes me.
5 You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
Just WOW, you seriously dote over me!
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
So you define me, complete me, and take care of me FOREVER!
YEAH I could really like this!
That’s all for now…
