Psalm 23 has been on my heart and mind for a good part of the year. It has now become a life verse for me…really?!?! At 36 years old, Psalm 23 is just now becoming a life verse for you?!?!? It’s one of the first memory verses you learned as a little child?!?!?! Why now? I think that is why they say that the Word is ALIVE and it endures from generation to generation to generation! God knows exactly when a piece of His word will become ALIVE to us, become APART of us, and impact our lives in a POWERFUL way! So I am excited to say that I will be sharing my journey of revelation with you in a series! Let’s just say, I am on Psalm 23 OVERLOAD…SMILE!!! I am meditating and regurgitating and meditating some more. I’m asking questions, I am wrestling with what this passage really means for my life…right now…and I am not just thinking about myself, but how do I share such richness with you all.
Lord, speak to us and through us. Open our eyes, ears, and hearts to receive this Word in a right, dynamic, transformative way. In Jesus Name we pray…Amen!
