He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,3 he refreshes my soul. - Psalm 23:2-3a
Dear Heavenly Shepherd,
When I take the time to peacefully meditate on your precious word, it feels like a mini vacation. You take me to a quiet place where I can relax and think through my life and how you make everything better. My inner person becomes calm and adjusted. I understand situations, problems, and solutions better. My soul is refreshed and my outlook is lifted up. In these times, I sense that you are the good shepherd tending to my soul as much as my body. I feel thankful, rested, and contented. Oh Lord, lead me beside the quiet waters of your word.

Open His word with expectation and God will lead your soul to his quiet peace.
