When the Lord is My Shepherd: Finding Hope in a Hard Time

By David Roseberry

Psalm 23 is one of the most well-known and beloved psalms in the Bible. Most people know the opening line by heart, “The Lord is My Shepherd, I shall not want.” But these six short verses are much more than a lovely poem read for quiet comfort. By adding the word “When” to the first line of the poem, the psalm becomes a long list of promises and realities that bring us hope and confidence in the hard times we face. Written in the early days the Pandemic of 2020, the words of the Poet-King David speak directly to the anxiety, fears, and troubles of our own day. And as the psalm leads to green pastures, still waters, and pathways ahead, the reader will find their confidence and faith in God renewed and refreshed. “When the Lord is My Shepherd” makes the ancient psalm sing a new song in our own day. The discovery of joy and hope in the hard times is greatly needed today.
