I have said for a long time now that I do not follow a church as such. I am very spiritual and believe deeply in God, but my beliefs do not, necessarily, agree with the church. However, they do overlap. Here, I will leave you with one such instance and may it bless you and help you through your day(s).
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
God is my caretaker – I have everything I need.
He helps me to rest and relax and stay healthy. He keeps me calm and quiet.
He lifts my heart and soul when I have exhausted it.
He helps to guide me in the ways that are best for me and blesses me.
Even when I stray and go somewhere or do something I shouldn’t, I don’t have to ever be afraid because he never leaves my side. His guideance is always there and I can rest easy.
He gives me food and joy and happiness even when those who don’t like me or my lifestyle are right there threatening me. He lays His hands on me and I know I have everything I could ever truly need or want.
He will always be by my side as long as I live, and when I die my soul will go and be with Him for all eternity.
