My 23rd Psalm by Betty Keenan

Thank you for the kind replies on social media and in person about my latest post,          “Her Vote Counted”.  My mother is resilient to say the least.  I hope you’ll be encouraged as your read her paraphrase of Psalm 23 from the Holy Bible:

You, Lord, are my Shepherd.

I belong to you and will never have to want for anything.

You direct my comings and going, give me rest when I am weary, and renew my spirit when I am troubled.

You give me peace when I face hard things (death, cancer, and unsaved family) and calm my fears.

You strengthen my soul and comfort me with your presence and Spirit in my very being.

You encourage and guide me with Your Word and bless me beyond measure.

I look forward to spending eternity with You.

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
