      "Because the Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything that I need." *Psalm 23:1*  

      One night, just before bedtime, I was reading my Bible–Psalm 23. After I finished reading, I meditated on what I had read. I was going through a particularly difficult time and felt very much alone. I wondered how I could apply this Psalm to my life.

      Through the years, the Lord has sometimes given me forewarning about changes coming in our lives. Sometimes He spoke in a dream, sometimes through what other people said, and of course, the Word. On this particular night, as I sat meditating on Psalm 23, God put a picture in my mind that was almost like a video clip.

      In the picture I was in a valley with Jesus. I was a child – His child – and I was holding His hand as we were walking. He was very friendly and kind and I was very happy and content. We were climbing a hill out of a valley. We were near the top, but not quite there yet.

      I looked up at Jesus and very excitedly asked Him, "What are we going to do now, Jesus?" Again He looked at me with that wonderful, kind smiling face. He didn't answer my question but I knew our life would be another great adventure with Him. A few months later, the truth of that picture began to become a reality.

      Life is changing for my husband and me. We are not sure exactly what God has planned for us, but we know that Jesus is holding our hands as we go. We know that God is always with us. Psalm 139:17-18 tells us,

      "How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly. I can't even count how many times a day your thoughts turn towards me."

      Father, thank You for thinking about us all the time. There is no one who cares for us as much as You do. Amen.
