When things are kind of going bad in the day, I often quote this
scripture from the 23rd psalms KJV, verse 1: "The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want". In other words, this is saying that the Lord is my guide
and protector, I shall not fail to possess, I will not suffer lack
or be needy or destitute. I will not have to hunt or seek in order to
receive, obtain, to gain, recover, acquire, attain, win, achieve, or
to come into possession of without effort.
I often mutter these words to myself when I’m going through a
difficult time, it rebuilds my confidence and faith in the Almighty
God; like when my nineteen year old daughter moved in with her
boyfriend, I couldn’t cut her off because as a Christian I didn’t
approve of shacking up but I couldn’t stop loving my child because
of her choice, but choose to be here if she needs me. Then there’s
the time my youngest son called off his wedding day when his fiancé
became pregnant with his child and he decided he didn’t want to
make a life with her any more or when my husband was out of work
and all the bills got behind and the rent went up, and then my Doctor
told me that I would have to have surgery on my legs and to add to
that my lovely dog Sherman died.
In all of this I stand to say
That Jesus Christ is the only way
I couldn’t have made it without his help
He showed me that through his words I could be kept
If you ever need a place of rest
I tell you that Jesus Christ is the best
I now have a new lease
Cause Jesus is my Personal Peace!
God Bless You.
