Nice Jacket!!!

I picked up a book some time ago at a used book store. On occasion I leaf through it and I really like what it has to say. Today I come upon it again and I know there was a reason. But the part that got my attention was the jacket. The back of the jacket, I found it very interesting and here is what it says..

*************************************

Odds are, you did this morning, somehwere between the first step on the floor and the last step out the door, you grabbed some luggage. You stepped over to the luggage carousel and loaded up, The carousel is not the one in the airport, its the one in the mind. And the bags we grab are not made of leather, they’re made of burdens. The suitcase of guilt. The trunk of discontent. A backpack of anxiety and a hanging bag of grief. Add on a briefcase of perfectionism, an overnight bag of loneliness and a duffel bag of fear. No wonder we are so tired at the end of the day.

Where do we turn for help? How about looking to an old friend, the twenty-third psalm. ********************************************

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’ sake.

 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth 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.

— KJV
