Sometimes I have struggled with His leading

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not [a]want.
He makes me to lie down in [b]green pastures;
He leads me beside the [c]still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads 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 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 runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will [d]dwell in the house of the Lord

Psalm 23


Sometimes I have struggled with His leading

It doesn’t always make sense to my mind

It demands total trust and fidelity

It seems to take away my control

It feels like walking in the dark


Then I ask what else I could hold on to?

Who else would be with me to the end?

Where else could I go that would heal my soul?

How else would I get through every day?

And there is none


He isn’t my shepherd because He demands it

He is because He invited me

He is because He healed my Heart

He is because I have experienced His love


He is my Shepherd because He is my God

He designed me in His Heart ahead of time

He dreamt of me in His to meet a need

He moulded me to look like Him

He breathed into me to give me life


He keeps me in sight as the apple of His eye

He has written my name on the palm of His hand

He has hidden me in His Heart

Under His wings do I find refuge

At His right hand I am protected


So even if it is all falling apart around me

Even when I don’t understand

Even when I am all alone in the dark

Even when I cannot understand the season

He is my Shepherd, My God, My love
