faith lift fridays ~ twenty third psalm













Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd = That's Relationship!
I shall not want = That's Supply!


He maketh me to lie down in green pastures = That's Rest!


He leadeth me beside the still waters = That's Refreshment!



He restoreth my soul = That's Healing!


He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness = That's Guidance!



For His name sake = That's Purpose!




Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death =
That's Testing!

I will fear no evil = That's Protection!


For Thou art with me = That's Faithfulness!


Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me = That's Discipline!


Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies =

That's Hope!


Thou annointest my head with oil =
That's Consecration!


My cup runneth over = That's Abundance!



Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life = That's Blessing !


And I will dwell in the house of the Lord = That's Security!


Forever = That's Eternity!

Annie, I loved this! I have never heard those modern-day interpretations. They really bring the Psalm 23 home, don't they?

Everyday that I read your blog is an encouragement to me! I love coming over to read what you've got to say...

And BTW, while I was out shopping yesterday, a woman in front of me at the check out turned around and said "Oh it IS you that I've been smelling - I walked by you before and thought something smelled so wonderful and I just smelled it again and I turn around and it's you again. LOVE your perfume!". How funny is that? Naturally, I was wearing my new Brighton perfume! lol I was ridiculously thrilled.
