Lead Me

The LORD is my shepherd; 
I have all that I need. 
He lets me rest in green meadows; 
He leads me beside still waters. 
He renews my strength. 
He guides me along paths that bring honor to His name.
Psalm 23

I think this is the most beautiful
psalm of them all.
It says to me today,
"I am leading you to be like Me."
He is eternally satisfied.
He is rest; He is stillness.
He is strength.
As we walk as He walks, 
we bring honor and glory to His name.
The Lord is my great Shepherd;
I am eternally satisfied.
I want to better understand His still waters.
The Holy Spirit leads us continually into that place.
It is a place where strivings cease
and we step back in complete trust.
If Christ demonstrated His power
by silent submission to His Father's will, 
then to be like Him is to practice this 
kind of silence.
Not the silence based in fear or apathy.
But the holy kid of silence.
The kind that brings honor to His name.
Lord, lead me beside Your still waters.
Ok, dreaming just a bit:)
