My Mother's Little Chair and Why it Reminds Me of Psalm 23

This little wooden chair is almost 100 years old and the story it holds is ever so sweet. This 1-minute devotion explains. Psalm 23


As a child in Sunday school, my mother sat in a little wooden chair and memorized the 23rd Psalm

Fifty years later, when my mother's church ordered new chairs, she bought one of the old ones for me. When I see it in my dining room, I imagine her as a wide-eyed child saying, "The Lord is my Shepherd."

The Twenty-third Psalm transmits God's:
♥ gentleness
♥ patient care
♥ guidance
♥ constant presence

I like images of Christ, our Shepherd, holding a small lamb comfortably on his shoulders. 

I’ve been on those shoulders.

On those shoulders:
♥ “I have everything I need.”
♥  He gives me rest and peace.
♥ “He renews my strength.”
He guides me in paths that bring honor to His Name.

When I see that little chair in my dining room, I remember my momma who "shepherded me" when I was a child. I miss her, but that little chair reminds me that she no longer merely speaks about Her Shepherd, she sees Him face-to-face.

There's something special about the Psalms. They are so helpful, encouraging, thought-provoking, and comforting. Did you know that Bible Love Notes has a collection that features more than 60 1-minute devotions based on Psalms? You could read them all in a little over an hour, if you set your mind to it, but why not add one or two to your daily quiet time: The Wonderful Psalms. And be sure to be looking for the Bible Love Notes Devotional Wisdom for Life coming out in February 2023. It will feature 100 1-minute devotions from Psalms and Proverbs in a hard-cover book.
