His Rest, His Leading, His Strength

September 20, 2007

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength” (Psalm 23).

I love His Word because it is true even when I don’t feel like it is true. I love His Word because it is a promise to me of who God when He seems far away.

I read these verses this morning and I offer them to you. He lets me rest…leads me beside peaceful streams…He renews my strength.

I need this right now. Today. Tonight. His rest, His leading, His strength to come in and fill my empty cup completely. I have written of the busyness of my life, a busyness I cannot and will not sustain. I do not have the answer to how to be less busy and I don’t know what to cut. I don’t know how to find balance.

But He can help me. His word says He will lead me to green meadows and that He will renew my strength.

I look forward eagerly and with great joy to telling you how the Lord is going to move in my life in this season and set me free from busyness and show me how to live out His priorities with balance.

Father, you see where I am and you know I cannot sustain this pace. I need you so desperately. I lay it all on the altar, Lord. Come and speak to me in the quiet.
