Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
       he leads me beside quiet waters,

 3 he restores my soul.
       He guides me in paths of righteousness
       for his name’s sake.

 4 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.

 5 You prepare a table before me
       in the presence of my enemies.
       You anoint my head with oil;
       my cup overflows.

 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
       all the days of my life,
       and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
       forever.

Do you ever get tired of this chapter?  I don’t.  This morning while making pancakes for breakfast, I was listening to Keith Green’s version of this verse.  I paused and actually thought about the words, the meaning.  I may be in a valley right now, but I don’t have to fear because,

"Surely goodness and love will follow me
       all the days of my life,
       and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
       forever."

Now, what could be better than that?
