Darkest Valleys

One of the greatest and most used passages in the Bible is Psalm 23. My Dad memorized and repeated it when he was in the Korean war. I have heard it at almost every funeral I have attended. It has been read in countless hospital rooms. Even as the shrouds of death encircle us we take hope that God is with us.


Today may we take comfort in theses great words about God's plan for our lives, and His active involvement in it.

Psalm 23 - A psalm of David

  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, 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.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

May the people of God say amen.
