“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Lush Meadows

Psalm 23
From the Message

1-3 God, my shepherd! I don't need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

4 Even when the way goes through
Death Valley,
I'm not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd's crook
makes me feel secure.

5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.

6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.

I loved that version of that Psalm!! I've been in and out of the Psalms all summer--probably did about 10 of them. They are so rich always. David has such a way of expresses the heart's longing, as well as its praises!

I love how you are posting so often. Everything you write is edifying!!

Its hard to believe our summer is almost over. I'm glad that I enjoy fall.

Waiting for the next post!
