Wednesday of the Twentieth Week in Ordinary Time
August 19, 2020
Today, in God’s Lavish Mercy, we pray with the iconic Psalm 23, the Good Shepherd. Let’s savor it today as we nestle into God’s merciful embrace.
(I liked praying with this transliteration by Christine Robinson.)
I am a child of God
I have everything I need.
This beautiful earth feeds my body.
You feed my soul.
You guide me in the ways of Life,
for You are Life.
And though I will walk through dark places,
and eventually to death,
I need never be afraid.
For You are with me always, In You I can find comfort. With Your help, I can face whatever comes. My joy overflows. Your goodness and blessing will be with me Every day of my life -- and forever.
Poetry: Let Your God Love You – Edwina Gateley
Be silent. Be still. Alone. Empty Before your God. Say nothing. Ask nothing. Be silent. Be still. Let your God look upon you. That is all. God knows. God understands. God loves you With an enormous love, And only wants To look upon you With that love. Quiet. Still. Be. Let your God— Love you.
Music: Shepherd Me, O God – Marty Haugen
