I very much hope that you have enjoyed my “THOUGHT FOR TODAY” Psalms throughout the 6-1/2 years that I have been blogging with WordPress; It has been an honor and a pleasure of bringing these Psalms to you. And now, the time has come for one final thought, and this one comes from the 23rd chapter of Psalms (NLT); I would like to thank you so very much for giving me the pleasure of providing these Psalms to you. With love-JW 

_He lets me rest in green meadows..._.jpg
(Zentangle(R)-inspired illustration by Jenn Webster)

The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever. 



From Psalms 1, 150(NLT):

(Illustration by Jenn Webster)

Oh, the joys of those who do not
    follow the advice of the wicked,
    or stand around with sinners,
    or join in with mockers.
  But they delight in the law of the LORD,
    meditating on it day and night.
  They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
    bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
    and they prosper in all they do.

  But not the wicked!
    They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
  They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
    Sinners will have no place among the godly.
  For the LORD watches over the path of the godly,
    but the path of the wicked leads to destruction…

Praise the LORD!

Praise God in His sanctuary;
    praise Him in His mighty heaven!
  Praise Him for His mighty works;
    praise His unequaled greatness!
  Praise Him with a blast of the ram’s horn;
    praise Him with the lyre and harp!
  Praise Him with the tambourine and dancing;
    praise Him with strings and flutes!
  Praise Him with a clash of cymbals;
    praise Him with loud clanging cymbals.
  Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD!

Praise the LORD!
