I shall not want.
He guides me, protects me
And provides for me
I lack nothing under His
He makes me to lie down
in green pastures;
He leads me to a place
Of plenty so I can rest
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
The Holy Spirit He has placed within me brings peace
And heals the wounds and scars the world
Has inflicted on my mind and emotions.
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake.
It is only through His guidance that I am able to be
Obedient to Him,
But the way I live my life
Is a witness to others of God's goodness & greatness
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for You are with me;
No matter what may come my way:
No matter what trap, temptation, or ANY evil
That rises up against me to cause me harm
Or to tempt me away from righteousness,
I will not worry or fear because God protects me.
He has saved me from peril I never even knew about.
Let my life always be a witness to His greatness!
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
There is blessing and peace in both
His correction and His guidance.
The boundaries of His righteousness protect me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
Though unwanted and uninvited to the abundance,
Prosperity and favor of my enemies
GOD makes room for me.
He puts me at that table and even my enemies
Will marvel at God's hand of favor and blessing on my life
You anoint my head with oil;
I am anointed!
It runs down my head and covers my whole body.
My cup runs over.
He has supplied MORE than all my needs!
I am filled to overflowing with God's gifts
I am abundantly blessed with
ALL I need
To do ALL He has called me to do.
Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me All the days of my life;
Everywhere I go
Every situation He places me in
No matter how "dark" it may seem
His goodness and mercy are
ALWAYS with me,
And showing me mercy
When I falter...
Shining as a beacon of light, so
Those lost in total darkness will
See His goodness and mercy through me.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
Lord let me always stay under the roof,
Of Your Kingdom...
Under Your protection,
Under Your provision,
Under Your direction.
Let my life always be a witness
To Your greatness,
Your mercy & favor
Now and forever...
To my children,
And their children's children.
~~Be Blessed, Arlene
