My Soul is Restored

Above Me
A wonderful friend of mine from my school days in North Carolina has been a great encourager.  He said that through prayer and support that "all bases are covered, but don't forget short stop (your BIBLE)".  He reminded me of Psalm 23, which our family is very familiar with as we have read it at many of our funerals.  But reading it again, brings even more assurance that right here and right now, God's words sustain me.  His promises to us are true.

Psalms 23:1-6(NKJV)
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.

As I listened to a recent sermon, the subject was loving God with all your heart, soul, and mind.  What is the definition of soul?  It is your "personhood"...what makes you, "you"... our "character". 

This journey has many valleys.  I can tell you that right now, my soul (my personhood) has been restored.

Thank you Jesus ~


  1. Hello, I went to HS with Christie. I'm not sure that we ever met but I wanted you to know that I send a daily prayer your way from Connecticut.

  2. Hello,

  3. Thank you Mike! Christie brought me up to speed and unfortunately, we never met. May I also say that my prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May God's tender arms surround you and give you comfort ~
