QTVOTD: Busy doing the right things…

25th (Day 57) Psalm 23 – The one everyone knows — “The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want…”

When you focus on the ‘Shepherd’ aspects of this Psalm then you see that a Shepherd thinks and observes in terms of his flock.  When David says ‘I shall not want..’, it is because when you have God as your Shepherd, there is nothing else you need.  But then in verse 6 he talks about ‘surely, goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life’.  This is where my ‘thankfulness’ comes from today.  All of the goodness and mercy He has bestowed on me through my wife and children.  It is for them that I am utterly thankful to Lord for.   My life is busy, but it would be busy no matter my circumstance.  In this case my life is busy with the right things -> my family, my church, and my ministry.  The Lord has made work support these other 3 things…before, my family, church, and ministry supported my work.  I am so thankful for the amazing women He has surrounded me with (Marianne, Bella, Sophie, Prim, and Brooklyn – I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!)
