Today a group of us from Ripley FUMC are going to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a short mission trip. Remember us in yoru prayers and remember all of those a couple years out from Katrina that are still in desperate need of help.
Sometimes we preacher can get in the way of letting God speak through His word. Today, instead of a giving you my reflections upon one of my favorite texts, I invite you to prayerfully listen to what God has to say to you through this passage.
Psalm 23 (King James Version)
1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
I could say much about all this passage means to me, and to all of us. Today, listen to Him. Read this passage and listen to his voice and hear what He has to say to you today.
