The other day, while sitting near our top dam surrounded by our sheep and calves, I was overwhelmed with emotions. My eyes became tearful, I started singing Psalms 23 “The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want”. The words of that psalm felt so real. 

I have this sensation that God knew the deepest desire, need, want of our inner being, one that we ourselves had no idea was there, and through His providence He orchestrated for it to happen. 

We are blessed beyond measure. ”I shall not want”, this means ”I have no need”, “I lack nothing”.  I would even say, ”I have in abundance”.

By abundance, I am not talking of material things. One can have all the material gains and still feel empty. I am referring to an inner state of abundance. I have no need, no wants, I feel my cup is overflowing.

  1. Beautiful post. It s always sad when others do not see the beauty around us or in all of God’s creatures. Although certain animals are bred and killed for food, they are still of God and precious. For me, the abundant life is having it all internally: peace, joy, serenity, love, etc. Only God can give us those things.
