What do you need?
Do you need to rest?
Do you need peace?
Are you afraid?
Do you need protection?
Are your enemies succeeding?
Do you need healing?
Is your cup empty of blessings?
Could you use a little goodness?
How about unfailing love?
Do you know what your future holds?
Well, I have some extraordinary news for you...
The Lord is your shepherd;
You have all that you need.
He lets you rest in green meadows;
He leads you beside peaceful streams.
He renews your strength.
He guides you along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
Even when you walk
through the darkest valley,
Do not be afraid,
for He is close beside you.
His rod and His staff
protect and comfort you.
He prepares a feast for you
in the presence of your enemies.
He honors you by anointing your head with oil.
Your cup overflows with blessings.
Surely God's goodness and unfailing love will pursue you
all the days of your life,
and you will live in the house of the Lord
Psalm 23 (New Living Translation
