Faithful Bloggers is hosting its first ever writing project. The topic is chosen for those who choose to participate. Psalm 23 was the chosen topic and those that join in are to select a verse and write a post explaining what that verse means to them. It can be as long or as short as you want. It can be a personal testimony, a devotional, or Bible study in nature. It can be a photo that you believe describes the verse.
As I ponder this passage, I am drawn to the last verse. What a promise from God....that goodness and love will be with me always, even in the tough times, the down times and of course the times of praise and celebration and when my life here on earth is done, I will dwell with Him....FOREVER!! This promise reminds me of the promise to Noah and the symbol of the rainbow. I took this picture from my backyard patio door which overlooks a large park. The rainbow always makes me think of the love of God and all His promises.
A psalm of David.1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
