Psalm 23 meditation

Shepherd me, God;
          help me follow.

All I need is given;
          help me trust, receive and be grateful.

You lead me to rest and restoration;
          give me faith to drink deeply, to lie down.

You lead me on a path with heart;
          help me follow, for your sake.

Even through the darkest valley
          give me courage to trust and follow.

You are with me, your presence comforting
          in all my difficulties. Help me trust

You prepare a feast for me despite my fears.
          You invite me to be at peace with my enemies.

You shower me with blessing;
          bathe me in gratitude.

Your goodness and mercy stick to me;
          help me trust I am in you always. Always.
