optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Psalm 23

The kids recite scripture every night. 

Every night they recite psalm 23. It's beautiful to hear. 

This morning I decided to write the scripture out. As I wrote line I thought about the magnitude of each word, what David could have been thinking or feeling but so much I thought of the magnitude in my own life. 

How God shepherded me in from wandering
How truly, even though I have gone to bed hungry, I've never really gone without, His love and grace has been ever present in my life.
Sometimes He makes me rest, like a little kid that needs a nappy, I find myself refreshed.
His Word guides me, and His Spirit, the Holy Spirit guides me, for THE GLORY OF HIS NAME!!
Even though things can be tough, it's the shadow of death not death, death has lost it's sting over me by His blood! And because if that, there is no reason to be afraid. 
His love and power give me comfort and courage, there isn't anything I can't do without Him.
My life is overflowing with His goodness and love because He set it all up for me!
My life will be blessed and rich because I have chosen to follow Him all my life. 

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 ever. (Psalms 23:1-6 KJV)
