The Lord Is My Shepherd......
As I reflect on my life, I look back at how I made careless decisions in my life. I missed many opportunities to have a life of complete fulfilment. I used my good fortune that the good lord gave me and wasted it, for I thought my good fortune would continue on forever. What was I thinking my lord, how silly it really seems, as I look back. I had been blessed with a good woman, I had been blessed with good health, and I had been blessed with good fortune, that when I lunged forward, took chances, I always seemed to come out with right ending.
For so long i thought it was me, oh lord, I thought It was because of my decisions that this was happening to me. My eyes were blind to the fact that it was you my lord. My ears would not hear you telling me to listen. My ego would only not accept that it wasn't me. My mind refused to use the logic that tried to reason with my ego, which had taken over.
My lord,how hard you must have tried to stop me from destoying my life . How hard you must have tried to keep me from falling off the high ledge I had taken myself to and looked down, you must have cried when you seen me treat the ones I love with such disdain. You had to have been disgusted when I degraded my wife, who stuck by me after all I put her through. You, my lord, were the one who gave her the strength to endure. You, my lord were the one who gave her the wisdom seek out her family in order to help me . You, and only you were the one that opened my eyes before I pulled the trigger, that would have ended what I thought was a life wasted. there are no words to describe how you have turned my life around. this is my way of saying, THANK YOU!!!
The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
