Psalm 23: Encouragement During COVID-19

P

Are you feeling discouraged lately? You’re not alone.

On top of everything being cancelled and the crazy news that is constantly streaming in, we’re also forced to isolate from friends and even family–primary sources of encouragement for many of us.

Today I went for a walk and listened to Psalm 23 on repeat on the Dwell app (a Scripture audio app). It comforted me and filled me with hope and I thought maybe perhaps we all needed the reminder.

The Lord Is My Shepherd

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 paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Even 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 overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.
