God is in control; He is in charge of my life. I don't have to figure everything out on my own.
He wants me to sit quietly before Him and wait patiently for His answer. He calls me to give up my anxiety and take ahold of His peace.
He's got my restoration plan in His hands. He's really the One Who helps me to be more righteous and give up sin, because He deserves the glory for it.
Even when things are tough and I can't see a way out of difficult situations, God is with me. He provides comfort perfectly; I don't need to escape through false comforts.
He is the One Who will justify me in front of unbelievers for choosing His way over the world's. In fact, He will pour out so many blessings that others will be astonished at my life.
My life will be marked by God's blessings, and my sins will always be forgiven by His infinite mercy. Best of all, eternity in heaven will totally ROCK!!!

You captured it! Psalm 23 is a secret of rest. It has personally meant so much to me. When I ought to have been overwhelmed by anxiety, the Lord opened my understanding of this Psalm (Pasture: Bed or Bread?)
