The Lord Jesus is my Shepherd

Spreading The Truth One Byte At A Time

By Ron Bender© 2008, 2013

Read The Bible

The Lord Is My Shepherd

I awoke early one morning. It was quiet after a night’s rain. I recited Psalm 23 again and again and talked to Jesus, the Good Shepherd – My Shepherd. What joy to appreciate Psalm 23 anew!

For three thousand years David’s prayer has been offered by people of various faiths and cultures. Jesus himself prayed Psalm 23 – more than that he fulfilled it. And he helped me to paraphrase it into words that restored my soul.

I’m sure that you also need for the Lord to restore your soul each day – there’s no better way than by meditating on Psalm 23. Here, no matter what we’re going through at the time, we meet our Lord Jesus in a special way!

“My Shepherd My Psalm” know Jesus as your Shepherd today!

Psalm 23: The Shepherd Psalm

The Lord Jesus is my Shepherd

who meets all my needs and makes me smile

He gets me to stop working and to relax

with him in his Father’s loving arms

He takes me into a quiet place

to be still and know that he is God and I am loved

He heals and rejuvenates my whole being

with his grace from the inside out

He holds my hand at the crossroads

and walks me onto the path of life


Even though I go through dark and difficult times

I don’t fear anything bad because you are with me

You discipline me in love and converse patiently with me

to bring out the best in me

You prepare a celebration to bless and honor me

right in front of my enemies


You anoint me with your Spirit to minister to others

out of the overflow of your love to me

I can count on your generous favor and tender mercy

coming to me wherever I go


I will live in the presence of Christ as his beloved

in all things and at all times


This Psalm is one of many prayer poems I use for my personal devotions. I have posted many prayer poems. Also, abiding prayer will help you draw near to the Lord.
