Still Waters: Psalm 23:2

My son Gabe and I planned a trip to Howard Prairie Lake in the mountains of Oregon, East of Ashland, on Saturday, October 13. When we woke that morning it was windy, cloudy, and rainy. We actually stopped to buy rain gear on the way up. We never could have anticipated what God would do on that day. It was spectacular. Gabe was fortunate enough to capture it in this photograph. (If you click on the picture you’ll see the full size original)

I couldn’t help but share it with you.

God is truly good to us.

Naturally this picture brought to mind Psalm 23, verses 2 and 3, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul.

Samuel said to Saul in 1 Samuel chapter nine, “…stand thou still awhile, that I may show thee the word of God.” (v. 27)

If you want your soul restored,

If you want to experience God’s still waters,

Slow down enough to carve out a still and quiet time in His word.

I think the pace of life can kill your opportunity to be led by His still waters. If you’re too busy to spend time with God, then you’re too busy.

  1. Thanks for this lovely reminder, Kurt, of the peace that comes from resting by the still waters and feasting in God’s presence. After some time deep in the valley this week I needed to hear this. The beautiful photo alone speaks of calm and serenity. Bless you 🙂

    • “…feasting in God’s presence.” I like the way you put that Joy. Thanks for stopping by and may our Lord walk with you through that valley, and lead you out of it to arrive beside His still waters.

  2. Beautiful! It seems to me that God opened up His mouth and blew away the storms so you could have peace in that day; just as He does with the storms in our lives! What an example by comparison! God is good!
