What does lying down in green pastures feel like? What a precious thing to feel His rest in the midst of a chaotic day! As the Lord leads you beside the still waters, what does that sound like? With phones ringing at work and children yelling for attention at home, the still waters bring a much-needed calm.

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake.
Yea, 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 runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
