Bold and Beautiful

Bold.

When was the last time you ran smack dab into something BOLD?
What about BOLD and BEAUTIFUL?
Today is your lucky day!

The Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I lack. (Psalm 23:1 HCSB)

That’s a bold as you get. Read it again.
This truth, taken at face value, is stunning.
Life altering.
Universal.
Available to all people, at all times – means me. Now! In whatever mess I find myself in, whether of my own making or the poor choice or attitude of another.
I lack nothing.
But . . .
Verse 1 and 2 are a dynamic duo. Kindred spirits, united and entwined.
To release the treasure of verse 1 in my life, I must be convinced, convicted, and familiar with the stunning, life-altering, universal truth found in verse 2.

He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.

Do I follow where he leads?
Will I follow where he leads?
Sometimes he leads me to external/physical places of quiet to “sit and soak” him in . . . to rest.
Sometimes he leads me to internal/spiritual places of quiet to “sit and soak” in him . . . to rest.

This is the secret place where I have everything I need.
And more.

First time here?

  1. Yes! I’m challenged by “He MAKES me lie down in green pastures”. I find it sad that He has to MAKE me. I should jump at the chance. We all should.
