‘… goodness and mercy …’




Psalm 23:6English Standard Version (ESV)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Most people are more positively inclined but on the contrary to most people I find that myself esteem is very low.  I tend to speak to myself in a really negative and harsh way.  I need to purposefully speak into my life, positive thoughts.

Each morning I wake and thank the Lord for another day, and then get really busy, once I slow down and have time to myself, the negative thoughts come streaming in.

I have so many regrets and before I realize it I have cut myself down to nothing.  Now I need to pick myself up and keep reminding myself that ‘surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.’  I have to purposefully stay focused to God’s word or I probably with fall into a deep depression.



I also need to remind myself of the goodness and mercy that does follow me, looking at what I have in my life and thanking God for His grace towards me.

Prayer
Lord God, thank you for the Psalms and thank You that I can stand on Your word ‘surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.’  I cannot make it on my own and I really need You each and every day.  In Jesus name, Amen
