But I Do Lack

Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing

He makes me lie down in green pastures

He leads me beside quiet waters

He refreshes my soul

He guides me along the right paths

For His name sake

Even though I walk through the darkest valley

I will fear no evil

For you are with me

Your rod and your staff they comfort me

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies

You anoint my head with oil

My cup overflows

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever


There are so many verses that have become so common we don’t even read them anymore. This is one of them and yet if we understood this passage of scripture how we handle our lives would be so different and how we handle other people’s lives would also be very different. We wouldn’t handle them we would let God handle them. So hard to do!

We say

If you will stop doing that

I will lack nothing

On and on….we do not really believe what this passage says

We can quote it and sing all about it

But what comes out of our mouth proves we don’t believe it


We are praying for us and we are praying for you that we will get the first verse of this passage right!
