Living the crazy life that God has given me!

Being OVERCOME

Psalm 23

A David Psalm
1-3 God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing.

You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

4 Even when the way goes through
Death Valley,
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.

5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.

6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.

As I prepare to fly to Jefferson City, MO to speak at “Set Apart” and event for “The Tower” I have been thinking and praying about the idea of being OVERCOME and all that can go with that.  For my family and I it is the idea that we are overcome with the expectation that we are going to see people enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ because of the church that is being started.  That we have been overcome with the knowledge that just like in the 23rd Psalm that God’s beauty and love chase after us.  That we have been overcome at times with fear about being able to financially survive this starting of a church.  That we have been overcome with God’s care, that just like in the 23rd Psalm that he revives my drooping head.  That I have been overcome with the thought that I am a Son of the almighty God.

What are your being overcome with?  What are you dealing with when it comes to your life and feeling discouraged and stressed out about? Share it hear in the comments so that I can be praying for you.
