May 28–Living the truth of the 23rd Psalm–Part 7

Day 7 of reading through the 23rd Psalm–a few verses at a time–and asking the LORD to show me (us!) what living the truth of His Word via the 23rd Psalm means each day. Whether it is a day of sadness, surprises or celebration. 

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life… Psalm 23:6

The perfect, passionate Goodness and the undeniable, unfailing Love of our LORD and Shepherd will follow us–literally pursue us–all of the days of our life. Can you even imagine this? Our LORD’s Goodness and Love–follows us, pursues us–attends to us.

When I am walking with my LORD and Shepherd, seeking to follow Him, yielding to His loving authority over my life, it is easy to know, see and sense His Goodness and Love following me…pursuing me…attending to me–even in the most challenging or sad circumstances.

When I am not walking with my LORD and Shepherd, not seeking to follow Him, not yielding to His loving authority over my life, it is so hard to know, see and sense His Goodness and Love following me…pursuing me…attending to me.

But! No matter what I may sense, our LORD’s Goodness and Love still are following me…pursuing me…attending to me! God never changes. It is I who has changed directions, not God!

And it is I who needs to turn around and run into the outstretched arms of my LORD and Shepherd. I need to know, see and sense my LORD and Shepherd’s perfect, passionate Goodness and His undeniable, unfailing Love–all the days of my life.

I need to view my life-walk from God’s perspective and trust in God’s unchanging truth: Goodness and Love follow me–all the days of my life.

And when I  do, it is then that I will know, see and sense His Goodness and Love–for myself–all the days of my life.

It is then that I choose to walk a life-path marked by the LORD’S Goodness and Love–living in me and working through me–to touch the lives of others.

May each of us choose to be a vessel of our LORD so that others, too, will clearly know, see and sense our LORD’s Goodness and Lovefor themselves–all the days of their lives.

Because we all need the LORD. We all need His Goodness and Love.

Read, again, today’s verse:

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life… Psalm 23:6

Let’s take a walk! And let our whole life-walk be one where we know, see, sense AND share our LORD’s perfect, passionate Goodness and undeniable, unfailing Love following…pursuing…attending to us, to all of us–all the days of our lives!

 In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
