The Shepherd's Psalm

Every single word of this little Psalm became precious to me back 3 years ago when my financial world started to crumble.

That the Lord, the Lord Almighty, would by MY shepherd, my guide, watching out for my welfare, was and is amazing to me.

Psalm 23
A psalm of David.

1 "The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,[c]
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort 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.
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
