    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

    You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
    He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (or through the darkest valley),
    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.

    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

    You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd.

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs. God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

    You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

      He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

      u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

      u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence.

Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

  13. stop the bulling in schools

    Sit right back & you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip. That started from a tropic port, aboard this tiny ship. The mate was a mighty sailor man, the skipper brave & sure. 5 passengers set sail that day for a 3 hour tour (a 3 hour tour). The weather started getting rough, the tiny ship was tossed. If not for the might of the sailing crew, the Minnow would be lost (the Minnow would be lost). The ship ran aground on the shore of this uncharted dessert Isle, with Gilliga-a-n, the Skipper too. The millionaire, & his wife. The mo-vie star, & the rest, here on Gilligans Isle. After 1st season “the rest” was changed to “the Professor & Mary Ann” at Bob Denvers requestR

      Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

      He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

      Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

      u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

      u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

      u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs. God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

      You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

      Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

      He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

      Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

      u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

      u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd.

      |The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

      He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

      Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (or through the darkest valley),
      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.

      The sky is falling, cause sokman said. lol. You republicans are the worst losers. Give it a rest, little whiner. The election is done. Let's get back to entertaining comments, ok? BTW, you do have a right to your opinion. It's the way you deliver it that I have a problem with. So much hostility in your comments, why is that? I was taught to be a gentleman. I know there are women who read these comments. Yours, sir, are not very civil. I get from your comments that you are a little older, so I'm doubly surprised by your lack of respect. May I suggest therapy.

      You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

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

      Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

      He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

      Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

      u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

      u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

      u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs. God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

      He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
      He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

      Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (or through the darkest valley),

    You’re gonna whine for 4 more years, aren’t you. I already told you that the cell phone thing was a program that started under Reagan, and the cell phone give away started under Bush. But being a typical Republican, you just love to change the facts to suit your needs. And yes, there are many folks on food stamps right now. As the economy improves, and the economy is improving, that number will change, too. You can try to change the facts all you want, but the facts are the facts. Last night, the American people have spoken. Too bad they said that Romney was BAD for this country. I would suggest you get over it, because there is nothing you can say to change the outcome of the election. Maybe they can put you on a happy pill at the home. It might help your nasty disposition. Oh for the rest of you, I’m not lol. I don’t bully, I just state the facts. Apparently, there is more than a few of us that have a problem with Sukkman’s outlook on life.
