Do you ever have moments when you are so anxious and weary? Days when the emotionsl toll is just too much that you cannot wash the dishes, or sweep the floor because it is just one more thing? This is when I go to the word!
As a little girl I memorized the entire 23rd Psalm and it still gives me peace today.
Imagine the stillness of these waters, the green pastures restoring your soul!
Psalm 23 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 forever.
Lord, Today I am struggling with restlessness. Feelings of inadequacy. Anxiety through and through. Please give me the peace that only you can give. Help me to slow down enough to hear what you have to say. To see the peaceful streams going by. To feel the soft, green grass as I walk down the dusty road. Show me what you have prepared ahead of me. Anoint my head with oil and fill my cup please Lord. Thank you for your mercy and your goodness over my life as I give it all back to you!
