I must post on 1/11/11.
The Lord has been so faithful to my heart these past two years and I am pleased to call him my friend. He has seen me through the in’s and out’s of doubts and disbeliefs, flourishing and growth, love and all things between. And though my heart has been unfaithful and my life seemingly fruitless and my heart edged with frost, he has tenderly led me down paths of righteousness: for his name’s sake. Still waters had become my only companions next to him, and even those he had taken away that mine heart would be steadfastly his. His rod and staff are too much for me to speak of now, but because of these, oh! how I know he loves me. His delight has been in me, in showing me mercy, in teaching me his ways. His oil has reached the depths of my soul and healed the parts of me I never thought could be healed. Though I’m still a mess, he sees me and he loves me all the more! He is making me like him. This is how I know he is faithful; faithful to me.
My life’s verse::Hebrews 11:1
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
A Psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
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 runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
