I was just thinking about the happy and not-so-happy times of the holidays. Traditionally, the holiday season is filled with laughter, fun, excitement, great food….:) But for some of us, the holidays are a bit more difficult. I thought I would share a version of Psalm 23 (from Psalm Now) to bring you hope, comfort, and peace…
Blessed Happy Christmas to you!!
The Lord is my constant companion.
There is no need He cannot fulfill.
Whether His course for me points
to the mountaintops of glorious ecstasy
or to the valleys of human suffering,
He is by my side,
He is ever present with me.
He is close beside me
when I tread the dark streets of danger,
and even when I flirt with death itself,
He will not leave me.
When the pain is severe,
He is near to comfort.
When the burden is heavy,
He is there to lean upon.
When depression darkens my soul,
He touches me with eternal joy.
When I feel empty and alone,
He fills the aching vacuum with His power.
My security is in His promise
to be near to me always,
and in the knowledge
that he will never let me go.
