Rachel Belles, our organist, writes:
One of my favorite verses is:Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Psalm 23:1 â€œThe LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want.â€
â€œTheâ€ â€“ not â€œaâ€ but â€œtheâ€ â€“ HEâ€™s the only one.
â€œLORDâ€ â€“ The powerful, holy, Almighty GOD
â€œisâ€ â€“ at the present â€“ right now
â€œmyâ€ â€“ itâ€™s personal â€“ HEâ€™s mine
â€œShepherdâ€ â€“ HEâ€™s my guide, my protector, my provider
â€œI shall not wantâ€ â€“ I lack nothing
The story is told of a little girl who had memorized Psalm 23 and was to recite it in a program at church.Â She got up on the platform and when she saw all those people, she got stage-fright.Â She said, â€œThe LORDâ€™s my Shepherd, and thatâ€™s all I wantâ€ and went running off the platform.
Yes, the LORD is my Shepherd and thatâ€™s all I want.Â I have everything that I need in Him.Â And yes, HE can be your Shepherd today!
