Personal God

Today's reading: Psalm 23:1-6

Psalm 23 is a cherished and well-known Psalm that is often quoted. It's definitely a Psalm with a comforting message. I can't tell you how many times I've read it, but today the absolutely personal nature of verse 1 touched my heart.

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."

I love that this verse is directed to each of us individually ("my" shepherd and "I" shall not want), which lets me know that God sees, and is watching over, every detail of my life. Thank you, God!!

What does verse 1 and the Lord being “your” shepherd mean to you? Do you believe that God is interested in you? Tami
