It’s 1AM. My little house and family is quiet & asleep. The crickets are chirping contentedly outside. Alas, here I sit with a cough drop in my mouth, and the band Gungor playing “Beautiful Things” in the background. I’m very much NOT asleep.
The 23rd Psalm has been on my heart the past few days. This afternoon I tried to recite it to myself, but was shocked to realize I couldn’t finish… I mean, EVERYBODY can quote the 23rd Psalm, right?! Hopefully, this is just my leftover “pregnancy brain” and my remaining 2 brain cells can start reproducing soon and fix this problem 😉 Regardless… sometimes, it’s good to go back to the basics.
“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters and He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righeousness for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will 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 anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Whoa. Every one of those sentences is loaded. What a loving Father we have. And, as Gungor says… He makes beautiful things out of the dust; He makes beautiful things out of us.
Yes, Father, You’re right… my cup overflows.
One thought on “My cup overflows.”
Abbey…I remember you as a young, powerful, and beautiful soul…You will never know how much this touched me today. The 23rd Psalm is sometimes taken for granted, but reading each line this morning reminded me of alot of things. Thank you and know that your blog ministered to my heart today. LG
