The Lord’s my Shepherd, I have everything I need.
Mercy and love follow me.
Though I walk through the dark valley of death, I will
Not be afraid for He’s here.
The Lord’s my refuge, no evil can come near me,
Dwelling in His secret place.
I put my trust in Him, He is my shield, I will
Let His peace rule in my heart.
Surely, the Angel of the Lord is around me.
I have no cause to fear, my God will not forsake me.
I am my Father’s child, no enemy can touch me.
I will not die but live, to tell what He has done.
He has ransomed me, He gave me all authority,
Power, love and a sound mind.
Strong in the Lord and the power of His might, I will
Put on His armour and stand.
This song has been on my mind. I’ve loved it for years, because it celebrates all we can do as we follow Christ. It is perfect for declaring when life throws you a rough situation (like, right now, for us). I’m pulling it apart, phrase for phrase, singing it, & believing it. Some things you gotta speak until they are rooted in the soil of the core of your being.
Another great one we’ve been singing around our house lately is (a ‘lil more juvenile! But still, great words), “He’s got the whole world in His hands”. It always makes me think of Gramma Janis who sings it to our precious ones. You can just sing that song for days, filling in the blank with whatever your mind is on.
He’s got ________________in His hands (x3)
He’s got the whole world in his hands.
So, what’s your mind been on? Comment! Gimme some love. Name a thing or two that you could write in that blank today.
