Pastor Robert Morgan writes in his book The Lord is My Shepherd that “now more than ever, we Christians need the peace and power of Psalm 23. Many of us are far too busy. The stresses of life are wearing us down, little by little, and the noise around us can be an unending cacophony of confusion. Our lives – with all our electronic tethers, emotional entanglements, and financial pressures – are more demanding than ever. We are simply not resting, not managing our clocks and calendars as we'd like, and as a result, we are often anxious and angry, even when we don't realize it. We are pulled in so many directions, as if we were twistable toys in the hands of a toddler.”
Do you feel the same? I sure do. Tomorrow morning we will be looking at the phrase “I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.” My hope is that God will use our time together to help us see how as the Shepherd He is at work in our lives, continually providing and restoring us.
