    Today's Text and Thought of Encouragement:

    "When my spirit was overwhelmed and fainted, throwing all its weight upon me, then You knew my path…I cried to You, O Lord; I said, 'You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living…Bring my life out of prison, that I may confess, praise, and give thanks to Your name."

    Psalm 142: 3,5, 7

    Amplified Bible

    "My God, whose gracious pity I may claim,

    Calling Thee Father – sweet, endearing name!

    The sufferings of this weak and weary frame,

    All, all are known to Thee.                                                          

    From human eye 'tis better to conceal

    Much that I suffer, much I hourly feel;

    But oh! The thought does tranquilize and heal-

    All, all is known to Thee.

    Each secret conflict with indwelling sin,

    Each sickening fear I never the prize shall win,

    Each pang from irritation, turmoil, din –

    All, all is known to Thee.

    The effectual means to cure what I deplore;

    In me Thy longed-for likeness to restore;

    Self to dethrone, never to govern more –

    All, all are known to Thee.

    And this continued feebleness, this state

    Which seems to unnerve and incapacitate,

    Will work the cure my hopes and prayers await –

    That can I leave to Thee…

    Oh welcome, precious…Spirit make

    My little drop of suffering for His sake.

    Father, the cup I drink, the path I take,

    All, all is known to Thee."

    Anson Davies Fitz Randolph

    Today's Study Text:

    "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters."           

    Psalm 23: 2



    Psalm 23 – Part 8

    "Waters That Refresh"

    "'He (the shepherd) causes me to water in places of rest.' In other words, the shepherd has chosen verdant pastures and waters that are restful enough that they are easy to drink from. The shepherd has given the sheep 'the Ritz' in terms of food and drink."

    Mary E. Shields

    Feasting on the Word

    Year A, Volume 4

    How has my Shepherd led me by still waters when I thirsted?

    Have I ever considered what it is I thirst for in my life?

    The provision of God is made available to the soul that trusts in God."

    Gary V. Simpson
