Lynna Clark: Praying Psalm 23

Lynna Clark

Lord, You are MY Shepherd.
I have every single thing I need, and plenty besides!
You allow me to rest in peaceful places. You gently lead me into thick grassy meadows. I lean on You and rest in Your care.
You renew my strength when I have nothing left. When cancer and sickness sap every ounce of energy I have, YOU dear God are the lifter of my head.
You guide me along right paths bringing honor to Your Name. Yes Lord! Make it so!
Even when I walk through the darkest valley…
Like when we lost our first grandson before he took a breath; when sickness took hold of our frail bodies; when we lost our ‘forever home’ and the security of our jobs, I admit… I’ve been really afraid at times.
But You dear God, YOU are faithful. You are close beside me! I know You are with me even when I can’t feel Your presence.
Your rod of protection will strike down my enemies. Your staff of comfort will keep me on the right path. You treat me so well that those who doubt my walk with You have to admit how blessed I am.
You honor me! Why in the world would You do that when You know what’s in my heart? I don’t understand why You’d pour oil on my head. Is it to heal my wounds or to give me a glimpse of days ahead when we rule and reign together?
My heart overflows with the joy of Your presence! You alone are so good to me!
I have no doubt that your goodness and love will track me down all the days of my life. When I think of being pursued by the One Who knows me best, my heart overflows!
And THEN I get to live in the home You’ve lovingly prepare just for me!
OH GOD! How blessed I am to know You! Praise Your sweet holy Name!
