Monday Devotional

Starting the week right, with the Lord….

This is “the rose that followed me 200 miles,” Spring 2012.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I lack.
In green pastures you let me graze;
to safe waters you lead me;
you restore my strength.
You guide me along the right path
for the sake of your name.
Even when I walk through a dark valley,
I fear no harm for you are at my side;
your rod and staff give me courage.
You set a table before me
as my enemies watch;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Only goodness and love will pursue me
all the days of my life;
I will dwell in the house of the Lord
for years to come.

  1. This psalm always brings such comfort. Eowyn–your sidewalk is lovely!

  2. Thomas Risinger

    I’ve always been a King James Version reader, and with all due apologies, something always gets lost in any translation from the KJV.

    • Gosh, Thomas Risinger, you sure are full of Christian charity.
      Thanks for being nitpicky over a lovely Psalm on a blog that doesn’t cost you a penny to read.

  3. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this remarkable and beautiful Psalm devotional that can direct our paths and bring us closer to Our Lord!
    As for you Thomas, please tell me specifically what is lost from this Psalm quotation? You state “something always gets lost” in any translation “from” the KJV. The authorized version of the KJV came into existence in or about 1611, in the 17th century, and it was this translation that omitted actual books from the Canon of the Bible that were in existence from the Early Church TO THE PRESENT TIME. Obviously, this is not the point of the post, but you have chosen it as your opportunity to be ugly. You should be thanking Dr. Eowyn for setting forth in writing for all the world to see, this most glorious Psalm! It never ceases to amaze me how inappropriate people can be and Our Lord still loves us!

  4. It’s not your’s until it’s in your own words….
    parrots can recite.
    I just wish I did Hebrew…maybe when we dwell in heaven 🙂

  5. I think the new translation is refreshing and certainly carries the beloved context of the 16th century KJV translation.
    You know I always adore the garden photos! When we gather together another good group of them, I’ll make a video. LOL

  6. Thank you for yet again a beautiful post.
