“He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:3-4‬ ‭NASB‬‬

For decades of reciting the 23rd Psalm for comfort, this one sentence sandwiched between talk of restoring my soul and walking through the valley of the shadow of death seemed like a misfit, as if sentence dropped into the passage as an afterthought. Then last year I committed to reciting this Psalm every day for 40 days. Toward the end of this period God showed me this timeless truth: the path of righteousness WILL take us through some dark seasons, but God will always be there with us. He’s not a bridge over troubled water; He parts the water and walks through it with us! Be at rest.🚦
