I Shall Not Want

I spent this morning in rehearsals for our Stake's production of "Savior of the World" and came home feeling uplifted, refreshed, and filled with new resolution to do better in my life.

I finished my morning by rehearsing the song "The Lord is my Shepherd", one of my favorites in the entire play. It's sung by [who else?] a group of shepherds who are waiting for the promised Messiah to come. They talk about how He will come as the root and offspring of David, and that He will come to lead His sheep. That's us.

As the boys sang their song and rehearsed their lines, I was covered with goosebumps and tears filled my eyes as the Spirit told me that the words I was hearing were true. The Lord is our shepherd. He really is.

And if I trust in Him, I shall not want.

This I knew, but it was such a blessing to have it re-confirmed to me this morning, in the midst of a group of teenage boys.

I really shall not want.
