Psalm 23:1

The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

+++

This scripture verse is like a precious mantra to me.

Say it again: The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

It brings great peace in many circumstances, whether times of trouble, fear, sorrow, or anxiety.

Saying these words to myself brings comfort.

It’s the knowledge, and not just the knowledge, but the experience that there is Something Greater, a Higher Power, that is holding me.

As St. Paul put it, in God we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

Each of us as well as all of creation is immersed in God.

In my time of need, like a wandering sheep, I turn to my Shepherd, the One who loves me unconditionally and will lead me.

In this wondrous, loving Presence – I am whole and complete.

I lack nothing because I have all that I need.

With each breath I know that I am being affirmed as God’s beloved.

And so are you.
