Psalm23-2bThe LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.  Psalm 23:1-4Whenever I need a safe place, this is where I go.  Fear retreats, worry jumps out the window, as I whisper these words in prayer.  I know your Presence, your Protection and your Comfort gives me Hope to continue on.The Dawn often seems so far away and I feel powerless and weak.  Yet I know that the Grace of God is all I need.  His Grace is sufficient for me.  His power erases the weakness within me and I take another and another step in faith.  The power of Christ infuses me with energy to love, to live and to serve.Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.  Psalm 23:6

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
