Today’s prompt asks: When you are feeling overwhelmed, depressed, or down what Bible verses do you refer to?
This is an absolute no-brainer for me…Psalm 23. It has been my peace for over 12 years in many storms. WHEW! Many!
The tone of Psalm 23 is powerful. David was more vulnerable than ever when he wrote this poem and his acknowledgment of God’s unyielding grace can bring me to tears almost every time I read it.
When he says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want,” I’m usually misty-eyed, lol! Understand what he’s saying:
- I am lost on my own
- I need guidance
- God is my direction and coverage
- I’m good!
