God is my Shepherd, my Healer, my Comforter, my Teacher, my Light, my Father, my Elder Brother, my Provider. I have no want for anything beyond Him.
He provided a desired haven for me with an arbor of trees around me, lush plants on my deck, and causes me to sit there quietly in repose, in meditation, in respite from the chaotic world around me. It is like being in a green meadow beside quiet waters, with Him lolling beside me, resting in the sun.
There, or in my living room sitting alone with Him, He restores my soul. He, through His Spirit who abides in me now and always, leads me on the right path in order to shine His light and show who He is through my words and actions as I do my best to follow the words and actions of Jesus.
