‘… 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

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.

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

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
