This is one of the most loved and quoted Psalms, used for many different occasions. Take time to read the entire Psalm and reflect on it. It can help us through many stages of our earthly journey. The image of God being our shepherd could help us to realize how God loves and cares for us and that the Lord is interested in every detail of our lives, just as the shepherd looks out for their sheep, God looks out for us.
If we want to be restored and led into right paths, we have to do our part, to be in a position to listen to God’s voice and hear the instructions that are given. On this spiritual pilgrimage we can position ourselves to be restored by God when we engage in spiritual practices, in that manner we can condition our hearts and souls to be made into the persons that God wants us to be. While on your spiritual journey, may you be restored in your heart and soul! Vernon T.
Prayer: Good Shepherd, help me to be open to your voice and guidance so that I may be restored in heart and soul!
