Read | Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

Consider your most memorable encounters with God. What were the effects? Were you refreshed? Empowered? Did you find rest? Comfort? Peace? Courage? Guidance? Maybe your perceived inadequacies were met with grace and understanding so pure, unexpected, and humbling, it took your breath away. Maybe, for a brief and glorious moment, you were aware of being seen...completely and utterly known, completely and utterly loved.
Whatever your answer, it’s always worth recalling what it feels like to glow in God’s light.
