for the weary…

I once heard a wise man say “God never promised us sleep…He promised us rest.  If you’re up because you can’t do either…might I suggest a familiar passage of the bible:  Psalm 23.  Here’s a little sum’ sum’ I’ve shared before, but it’s always good for a refresher: 

Psalm 23: broken down for ya…

The Lord is my Shepherd,
That’s Relationship!

I shall not want-
That’s Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
That’s Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters.
That’s Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul
That’s Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.
That’s Guidance!

For His name sake
That’s Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death.
That’s Testing!

I will fear no evil.
That’s Protection!

For Thou art with me
That’s Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me,
That’s Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
That’s Hope!

Thou anointest my head with oil,
That’s Consecration!

My cup runneth over.
That’s Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life.
That’s Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord.
That’s Security!

That’s Eternity!
