Why are you downcast? Put your hope in me! Let your spirit arise in power and authority to overwhelm your soul in all its volatility and turmoil. Dominate your emotions. Bring them into order. Be my sheepdog! Round up every straggling resentment, worry, upset and pain, and corral them in; surround them with my truth and watch them settle down, subdued and quiet.
Unleash my Holy Spirit in you! Unleash my joy!
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
