DAILY WORSHIP FROM ST MARY’S, PORTCHESTER

Today we reflect on Psalm 23.
Even as followers of Jesus, we are not told that we won’t go through ‘dark valleys’ (v.4); we are not told that we won’t have battles (v5 ), but we are promised that God will be within us in these times. May you know the peace of God which ‘passes all understanding’

Psalm 23
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 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.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

Here’s a song for today ‘The Lord’s my shepherd’
