    Marilyn, accept my sympathy! This is one of my favorite scriptures. When I feel depressed and feel like there is no-one to talk to I find myself saying this prayer and concentrating on the words, and it has helped me go through the most difficult times in my life. The words are powerful and so is the Almighty God all the time!

    I'm going through a tough time right now, so this Psalm is helpful in getting me to focus on having a trusting and positive attitude. I appreciate read the thoughts of other people.

    Most popular Psalm to me. Compare this Psalm with Jesus Christ ,the "Good Shepherd" who gave His life for us His "sheep" . Jesus said " I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. And I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out my hand" John 10:11,27,28 .

    Stop-- and see how many things are happening in your Life now.. How can you change it to the opposite in God's word? Look at how the enemy is closing in. Stop the darkness of your mind. Put in the Light of your Heavenly Father. Focus on the Best way to change your situation. And no matter what-- give it to your Father and watch the changes begin. I have fought many battles of this world. GOD WON!!

    To stay calm in this Evil world, is to Listen closely to what your Father is saying to you. Not to rush off and not see your Father's creation of another day, coming before your eyes. Stop-Watch- Listen.. What do you hear? Slow down! Live this day to the fullest. You never know if your last to see. Experience all God's Love for you. Keep the enemy away! Stay in God's Word.He is right next to you!
