Romans Chapter 8
THERE is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after flesh, but after the spirit. 2. For the law of the spirit of life in CHRIST JESUS hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the Flesh. 4. That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after flesh, but after the spirit. 5. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the spirit the things of the spirit. 6. For to be CARNALLY minded is death; but to be SPIRITUALLY minded is Life and Peace.
7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, Neither indeed can be. 8. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken you mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of GOD.

The LORD is my Shepard, I Lack Nothing….
Although sometimes we feel we lack everything, Sometimes we cannot see what you have given us, through the lie of what has been taken away. Show us how to see your blessing. Show us how to see your provision, when the world teaches us an economy of fear & scarcity. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.Be strong & courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. He guides me along the right paths. We so often turn from your path—believing lies about ourselves, about others, about you; taking on burdens that are not ours to bear; struggling to entrust you with ourselves, our family, our friends, and our circumstances. Guide us along your path of trust & contentment.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, The valley of depression, the valley of medication, the valley of sorrow, the valley of pain and abandonment, the valley of past wrongs done to me, the valley of despair, the valley of derision, the valley of fear, the valley of waiting, the valley of misunderstanding.
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. You have made us worthy. You have made us chosen. You accept us with all our flaws, with all our illness and frailty, with all our failings. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life. Goodness and Love will follow us. Goodness and Love will chase us down—despite ourselves, despite others, despite our circumstances—goodness and love, by the power and grace of your Spirit, have found us. And will never let us go.
I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Forever. In health, in strength, in love, in mercy. Forever. AMEN.
The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
