Psalm 23 King James Version (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
I know some are wondering what’s with the religious post considering what I write about?
But until one has actually walked through the valley of the shadow of death you learn you have nothing else to fear. Nothing else to be depressed about for you have seen life in it’s truest, ugliest and starkest form. You don’t have to feign it or be moody to be deep. One doesn’t come out that valley unchanged.
Most people haven’t actually read my books who pass judgement strictly on the subject title.
I am not talking about institutional religion as so many loves to blame for everything under the sun. I am talking about the fact that there’s Something greater than you and I. And that’s the only Hand you will have to hold onto when or if you ever have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I know I wouldn’t be here if God had not held my hand and helped me withstood the storms of life. Call it religious, (I don’t call it that. I call it love and pure light.) I don’t mean in a New Age fashion either. Some call it divinity or whatever but I know there’s Something in this world greater than you and I. I don’t wear it on my sleeves for the world to see because the world can not condemn nor judge me. I wear it in my heart.
