"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

FRIDAY FOCUS ~ S.P.A. 4



This is where I am and always want to be
{not just Fridays but every day}

SEPTEMBER PSALM ADVENTURE




Today's Psalms and my choice from these
of course, has to be
Psalm 23
{since the above are now linked to both 
The Message and The Voice, (which is below too)}


"The Eternal is my shepherd, He cares for me always.

2 He provides me rest in rich, green fields

beside streams of refreshing water.

He soothes my fears;

3 He makes me whole again,

steering me off worn, hard paths

to roads where truth and righteousness echo His name.

4 Even in the unending shadows of death’s darkness,

I am not overcome by fear.

Because You are with me in those dark moments,

near with Your protection and guidance,

I am comforted.

5 You spread out a table before me,

provisions in the midst of attack from my enemies;

You care for all my needs, anointing my head with soothing, fragrant oil,

filling my cup again and again with Your grace.

6 Certainly Your faithful protection and loving provision will pursue me

where I go, always, everywhere.

I will always be with the Eternal,

in Your house forever. "

Psalm 23
"Psalm 23 is the best known and most beloved psalm in the collection. 

Surprisingly, it casts humanity as sheep—stupid, helpless sheep. But the long-lasting appeal of Psalm 23 is a direct result of that casting because the imagery is both soothing and accessible.

When he was a boy, King David was a shepherd watching his father’s flocks in the hills around Bethlehem. In those days, too, it was common to refer to kings in the Near East as shepherds; but not all shepherd-kings cared for their sheep. Though David tried to shepherd his people well, he knew the truth: the Eternal is the true Shepherd.

In John 10:11 Jesus makes a bold claim. He declares that He is the good shepherd. Immediately His disciples detected the resonance of Psalm 23 in His words. Those of us who follow Jesus today come to know Him as that gentle but strong shepherd who guides us through life if we will follow Him." ~ from Bible Gateway

" My Shepherd


Dear Father, Today’s name of Christ, the Shepherd, is one of His most amazing and reassuring names! I bless the Shepherd that He is the great Pastor, as well as the Redeemer and Preserver of men. I am deeply grateful that He completely guides, guards, provides for and lays down His life for me and all people who receive and follow Him. I rejoice that we can unquestionably say with King David, “The Lord is MY Shepherd,” and know with all certainty that because of His absolute authority and His absolute love for us, “I [we shall] lack nothing.”
I marvel at the full magnitude of the Shepherd’s provision for us: “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right [righteous] paths for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley [of the shadow of death], I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.~ from You Version reading plan
May Our Lord
lead you and guide you 
(us)
into restful and refreshing
green pastures beside quiet waters
for me
that can be back home in
STILL WATER
or
some places here along the
Pacific
peaceful waters

flowing or "washing over" me
or
"wave after wave
crashes over"
me
where 
YOU
make me 
BRAVE

and
YOU

May our cups be filled again and again
with
HIS GRACE
and
Moments of POWER
In His Presence

{dedicated to a dear sister in Christ who was listening to BTC this past Weds.}

with
Our Shepherd


Remember that you have to squeeze
