The Lord Is My Shepherd: Dwelling in the House of the Lord

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want;
   he makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters;
   he restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
   for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
   I 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 my enemies;
thou anointest my head with oil,
   my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
   all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
   forever. – Psalm 23 (RSV)

One way of contemplating Scripture is guided meditation. By using our imagination and placing ourselves within a passage, we can often experience God’s Word to us more effectively. This guided meditation is of Psalm 23. You are invited to close your eyes and be led by what you hear; however, there will also be images on the screen as some of us meditate better with the help of a focal point.
