The Lord is my Shepard
I was so tired yet could not sleep so I started meditating.
I meditated on a few verses of Psalm 23. I pictured myself as a sheep being lead to green pastures. I visualised laying under a big shady tree, feeling the cool grass on my skin. I heard a stream running close by.I just rested and rested under that tree.
I kept thinking about the Shepard looking after me, and I did not need to worry about anything whilst I rested a while.
It was such a peaceful experience. I think I rested more in that state, than I would have had I been sleeping.
Thank you Jesus that you really are my good Shepard. I wish I could feel such utter peace every day and not let worldly worries get to me. My prayer today is that I look to you in my day to day activities and focus on what is good, pure and true, walking in peace and love, especially with my husband and my kids. Amen.
