Food For the Soul


Another post that I wish I could take credit for writing – but it was sent to me.  It's just a little something to ponder over your coffee break.

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 for eternity.”

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 mine enemies = That's Hope!
Thou annointest 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!

Forever = That's Eternity!













What matters isn’t WHAT we have in our lives…
But WHO we have in our lives!
