The Lord is my Leader
I have everything I need.
He causes me to rest in peaceful places.
He guides me along calm waters.
He cleans and fixes my soul.
He leads me on bright and holy paths
That are good for me,
Will bring Him glory,
And will lead me to His Heaven.
Sometimes I walk inside shadowy, scary places.
Even then, I will choose not to fear.
Because God is with me.
His loving discipline, guidance and rules
Remind me that I am His child.
And, those boundaries are strangely
Loving Father, You bring me to a place
Of good things and gifts
Even inside a circle of
Problems, pain, and difficult people.
You have chosen me,
And give my life purpose.
I am filled up
and dripping with unnatural contentment.
I have this feeling that
Your grace, forgiveness and goodness
Will keep pursuing me all through life
Because of your grace
I will find myself in heaven,
And I will call Your Home…
A vague interpretation of David the Psalmist’s inspired Psalm 23.
