I’m OK, Only Because…

a.k.a. Reflections on Psalm 23

I won’t starve to death because I have a shepherd.  I won’t get lost because I have a shepherd.  I won’t become prey for the hunters because I have a shepherd.  I won’t give in to fear or anxiety because I have a shepherd.  I will be restored because I have a shepherd.  I will be guided into righteousness because I have a shepherd.  I will be displayed as an object of love because I have a shepherd.  I will live with God forever because I have a shepherd.

It’s a good thing I have a shepherd!  In fact, I’m OK only because the Lord is my shepherd.

Dear Lord, Thank you for bringing this Psalm to life for me.  Because of you, I don’t have to fear evil, uncertainty, or deprivation.  Thank you for making me part of your flock.  I don’t deserve it.  I am a wayward sheep.  Thank you for being a great shepherd!
