If The Lord’s Our Shepherd ~

If the Lord is our Shepherd,
why then do we still want?
If He supplies all our needs,
why do our lacks still taunt?

If besides still waters He leads,
why then do we still fear?
If He fills us with quietness,
why don’t we hold Him near?

If green pastures bring peace,
why then are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our souls,
why then do we still doubt?
If He satisfies our deep thirst,
why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
why then do we still wander?
If the Lord is truly our Shepherd,
we needn’t these things ponder!

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down
in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside
the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Never Depleted ~

Though I am weary,
I am never depleted
for my Lord supplies me
with strength when needed.

He always leads me to find,
waters running still
whenever I follow
after knowing His will.

Though I am tired,
I am never exhausted
for, it’s in my Shepherd
all these years I’ve trusted.

He renews my soul daily,
my heart He hourly repairs
whenever I give to Him
the bulk of my earthly cares.

Though I am fatigued,
I am never powerless
for, my Lord keeps me . . .
from being weak and helpless!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. He maketh
me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Besides Stilling Waters ~

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus leads me
whenever from all the chaos
I long and need to be.

It is where my heart goes,
in the heat of the day
where with Him in my mind
I can linger and stay.

Besides stilling waters,
running throughout my soul
is where I ask Jesus
to regain in me control.

It is where my hopes flows,
whenever there is a drought
where with His peace I find
the abating of my doubt.

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus and I meet
it’s there that my fears . . .
I leave at His feet!

Those Still Waters ~

When my spirit,
is weighted down
from the tension
that is all around.

My Good Shepherd,
brings to me
those still waters
where peace flows free.

When my spirit,
feels weary and spent
from all the cares
today I have met.

My Good Shepherd,
leads me to
those calming waters
where peace runs true.

When my spirit,
feels out of control
it’s in those still waters
Jesus calms my soul!

My Shepherd’s Care ~

My Sheep ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Besides still waters, He leads me,
to pastures green, He guides
my Shepherd’s care for me
never wanes, ebbs or subsides.

He feeds me the Good News,
with words that sustain me
He fills me with wisdom
so His truths I can see.

To the land of milk and honey,
where heavenly manna flows
my Shepherd takes me to where
my love for righteousness grows.

He corrects with tender affection,
sometimes with His rod
but, I know His staff of love
will steer me to the throne of God.

Into the valley He takes me,
where I can sip from His well
the spring of Life-Giving waters
keeps my soul from the pit of hell.

Besides still waters, He guides,
to pastures green, He leads me
my Shepherds’ care will never cease
until with Him in heaven I’ll be.

“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.”

Did You ~

Quietness used with permission IBible Verses

Did you feel the Lord’s hand,
in your life today
did you feel Him gently
nudging you His way?

Did you feel His tender touch,
in your soul today
did you notice Him tenderly
guiding you His way?

Did you feel the Lord’s breath,
in your ear today
did you hear Him softly
calling you His way?

Did you feel the Lord’s love,
in your heart today
did you sense Him quietly
beckoning you His way?

Did you feel the Lord,
in your life today
did you know He wants you
to always feel this way?

If The Lord is Our Shepherd ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If the Lord is our Shepherd,
then why do we still want?
If He supplies all our needs,
then why do our lacks still taunt?

If besides still waters He leads,
then why do we still fear?
If He fills us with quietness,
then why is it not here?

If green pastures bring peace,
then why are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
then why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our soul,
then why do we still doubt?
If He satisfies our deep thirst,
then why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
then why do we still wander?
If the Lord is your True Shepherd,
these things . . .
we would not have to ponder!
