There is that place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God. When I lay my head down upon my pillow each night after an emotionally tiring day, I close my eyes and quote Psalm 23:"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 paths of righteousness for His names 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: 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."
I have found my "green pasture" that the Lord has given me. It is a place of complete rest and peace for me. It is when I am alone with my thoughts and pen and paper. I have many experiences of which to write about that God has brought me through by His grace and strength. I have kept them inside for way too long. I hope that by sharing them I can inspire others to never give up but to cling to the Hope that is in Him alone.
