You shall not be in want

Interesting how the most simple pieces of scripture can become the most profound.

The Lord said to me, 'grab your bible, and turn to Psalm 23'. As i was reaching for it, he said to me, 'grab a pen'.

I read the first sentence, 'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want'.

Then he gave me something to write down; he said to me...'I am your shepherd, you shall not be in want'.

50 minutes later, i still hadn't got to the second sentence.

Perhaps the Lord wasn't ready to let me lie down until i'd arrived at a place where i was no longer in want.
