Discussion for Psalms 23

  • Peter
    Hopeful, but hindered.
    I am still the same; hope that you are well; conquering the problem; and have faith that it can be done especially if God is with you. God is always with us when we allow Him to be. He has created us in his image; and allowed us to choose and He has given his son, Jesus to atone for and overcome our sins. Believe in God and Jesus and have faith. I do not know what else2say

    As a kid I memorised psalms 23, now I am beginning to understand the meaning better. I know Jesus is my shepherd and his love for me is forever. I believe that Jesus is the son of God, was born of virgin Mary, was crucified for my sins, died, and rose again and will come to take me home. I believe.

    Psalm 23:2
    Several years ago, I was at home in a deep sleep. In my sleep, I heard this Scripture. I woke up repeating the Scripture. It was awesome!!!
    Life at that time was hectic. I had a teenage son on wrong path. God taught me to Praise Him! Today, I smile when I hear psalm 23:2.
