A few thoughts about the 23rd Psalm
In times of trouble and fear this has always been a wonderful passage of scripture that
comforts many. Reading the Psalms as a whole during difficult times is a way to receive
that comfort that the Lord gives us through the Bible. If you don't read your Bible on a
daily basis or have some good devotionals to read then consider starting today to read one
Psalm a day. Start right now with the 23rd Psalm below and tomorrow go back and start
at Psalm 1. Also when things are difficult and you feel that you can't even pray
remember that the Lord wants to hear from you. And you can cry out and tell Him all
that is on your heart and He will still love you unconditionally. He cares about every detail
of your life and He knows every hair on your head. He even counts each tear and keeps
them in a bottle. God is still in control and faithful. So grab your Bible and read His word.
~The 23rd Psalm of David~
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."
Are you a Christian? Do you want to know how to become one?
Do you want to have that peace that passeth all understanding?
Wouldn't it be nice to have the assurance that you have "the good shepherd" caring for
you and guiding you in your life? If you are not a Christian and would like to know how to
become one just click the ABC's above. It's that simple.
said "I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his
life for the sheep.....I
am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine."
~John 10:11 & 14 KJV~
ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not
we ourselves; we
are his people, and the sheep of His pasture."
"All we like SHEEP have gone astray........"
Encyclopedia tells us about SHEEP:
"Among the most valuable of all the domestic animals are the sheep. They provide humans
with meat. They also give wool for cloth. Young sheep or lambs provide lamb pelts which
are used for fur. In some lands the people drink sheep's milk. Other people use the milk
to make delicious cheese.
Sheep live in flocks. They follow a leader, usually an old ram (male sheep). They eat
grasses and other plants. They like to graze over wide areas of pasture. Sheep are
naturally hill animals. They like it best where it is high and dry. They can be raised,
however, on any land that is not wet and swampy.
Domestic sheep depend on humans for protection. They are very timid. A sheet of paper
blown by the wind will frighten them. A thunderstorm may throw them into a panic. They
may drown without a struggle if they are scared while crossing a stream. Fire in a building
where sheep are kept may destroy a whole flock, because they are too frightened to flee."
"We all like sheep have gone astray...."

"I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the
Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for
the sheep. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before
them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice."
