May 9, 2019: Shepherd Acrostic

Reading: Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I 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.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.


Shepherds take care of the sheep. Like God takes care of us.
He gives us shelter when we need it.
Everlasting love,
Hope and
Everything I might need.
Remember this when you are in
Dark or scary times that God is with you.

–Claire Hershberger



Dear God, thank you for guiding me through hard times.
