Loving Shepherd

As you read through the passage Psalm 23 (NIV)
write down the phrases that stick out to you the most. 
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2   He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
After reading through the passage a second time,
spend a few minutes journaling about the ways in which you trust God to guide you
and care for you. 

Read through the psalm one more time and
write your own version of it to use in prayer as you finish your meditation. 

Some questions for further reflection: 

How can you take steps to trust God more in your daily life? 

What things do you desire to maintain control over in your life,
is it possible that you may be holding these areas back from God\’s influence?
