psalms of august: #23

My cup overflows…

Psalm 23 was one of the first sets of scripture I memorized. Had to do so one year at Vacation Bible School at my home church in SC. Didn’t understand the true meaning of the Psalm at the time, but now, its words reveal God’s power and richness. Shows that with Him, I truly lack nothing…

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm‬ ‭23:1-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
