Psalm 23, a modern translation: When God is my boss, I don’t need a thing. He makes a way for me to rest in the middle of all the chaos. I can picture Him walking with me by the river. He asks me how I am and He fills my soul with His unfailing love. God knows where he’s going, so for his glory I am going to follow him. That’s the best place to be.
Yes, life is tough. Heaven knows it is. But Jesus took the nails and went through the darkest valley for me. That’s why when things get scary–when I don’t know what to do or even how to pray–I will trust Jesus and not be afraid because He is always right beside me. He is my protector and best friend.
God is setting a place for me at the heavenly banquet table. He understands. He knows. In the middle of the storm, He blesses me so much I will never understand. Every day I can breathe, I know God’s love and goodness cover me. And when my days here are done, God promises me a place with him in heaven. Forever, I will join believers and angels in praising our loving Savior! What a glorious day. Thank you Jesus for being my great shepherd.
