The Lord is my editor He makes me lie down and rest upon His word
He leads me to the quiet place of prayer so I will think before I write
He leads me to live His word not just listen so others will see His name written in my life
He stays up with me on lonely sleepless nights giving the comfort of His presence when I have nothing I can think of to say.
He prepares a feast of the joy of His presence when unfair words work to discourage me
He pours His grace over my life in such amounts that I can’t wait to share it with others
He sends blessings to follow me every day
And when He sends His approval of my manuscript
He includes a note saying, “Why not stop at my house when you are done
So we can spend all of eternity together!”
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy[e] shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23 ESV
