HE LEADETH ME BESIDE THE STILL WATERS

He leadeth me beside the still waters, he restoreth my soul

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want, he maketh me to lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters, he restoreth my soul, he leadeth me in the paths of righteouss for his name's sake, 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, thou preparest a tabel before me in the presence of mine enemies, thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over, surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever(Psalms 23)

"The Lord is my sheperd I shall not want", looking back when I was young, I often wondered why would I not want the lord as my shepherd, but as I grew into an adult & began to study God's word I began to realize that it meant because I know him as my shepherd I shall not want for anything,on a scale of 1-10 of how rich I'd say I am I'd have to say 10 not by this worlds standards by any means for we have our share of trials & the ups & downs of everyday humm drum like anyone else but because "He restoreths my soul" even in my darkest hour I can still praise him , for there never was a time that I needed to come to this well of living water that it was empty, when was the last time you came to the well,"He leadeth me beside the still waters, he restoreth my soul" do you fell dry & empty within your soul today, begin to let the holy spirit draw you to this well of living water, partake of the cool living water as it restores your soul, this living water that I speak of is Jesus & no matter what life throws our way , he is always there by the well with cup in hand with cool living water

as choir director I come across many wonderful songs, it's sad how some go unsung in our hymnals because we don't know how they go, for so many are messages within themselves as in this one I came across today

GOT ANY RIVERS TO CROSS

copyright 1942 Alfred E Smith

Got any rivers you think are uncrossable?

God specializes in things tho't impossible & he can do what no other power can do

Got any mountains you can't tunnel through

God specializes in things tho't impossible & he can do what no other power can do

Helen, that was an wonderful and very personal interpretation. I'm glad you shared it with us.

I have to admit that I am a lover of the old tried and true hymns.

I just stopped over from Picket's after I saw that you started your own blog!! WELCOME!!!
What a beautiful message this is! I love the wording in that hymn.. and you are right- so many hymns go unsung that even if read aloud would uplift and teach! Our church started a thing where they would introduce a "new" unfamiliar hymn every month. The first Sunday of the month the congregation would just read through it and then the organist would play it.......by the end of the month it started to sound pretty good!! LOL!! Then most of them would end up being added to the favorites!
Stop by any time! I am glad you have joined blog land. I adore your sister as I think she is just one of the sweetest souls there is!
