He restores my soul

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.  
  He makes me lie down in green pastures ; He leads me beside quiet waters.

He restores my soul ;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; 
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies
You have anointed my head with oil ;
My cup overflows.

Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever
this is one of my favorite Psalms..when I saw this green field, I was immediately reminded of it...these verses have been a hiding place for me for many years.. 
I love that He MAKES me lie down in green pastures and He restores my soul..I think that these two actions go together...because I yielded to lying down, my soul is being restored.

Life has been hurtful..people have been unkind..sometimes it has been very hard to get over the betrayal of close relatives.

then I remember He prepares a table before me..
my cup overflows..

it is all about perspective..His perspective..
and the healing begins all over again.

He truly, truly does restore my soul.

and for that I am forever grateful to Him

does your soul need restoring?
let Him make you lie down

thank you for stopping by today....please come again soon..
