The healing words of Psalm 23 are like a balm. Yep its a modern rendering (from the Message) and doesn't always hit the spot, but, 'Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life', is a lovely, humbling thought. He really does know how to fix us.
23 1-3 God, my shepherd!
I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.4 Even when the way goes through
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.
