I Shall Not Want

     We live in a world of me, me, me, and a world of want, want, want. It is where we go and get what we need, and minding our own business. Carrying about our selves, and doing what we have to for ourselves. We go and get what we want; because we never have enough. We always want more and more, and more!


"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures..."
Psalm 23: 1-2

 I shall not want....

I shall not want....

I shall not want....

     Living a life dedicated to Jesus is.... Pretty hard. When we pray and ask that God's will be done in our life, why do we think only in our actions? That is not enough! When we ask Jesus to come into our lives, we must completely give up our selves, and welcome him in. Mind, Body, Soul, and Spirit all become is; Our thoughts must be like Christ, our Actions, Our Temple of the Holy Spirit ( Our bodies) everything we are, we must give up to the Lord. We MUST give up the I want, I want way of thinking and think I give I give 

Shepherd me Today,
Tomorrow and Always O Lord!
     Knowing that the Lord, God, is shepherd makes us not want. It is in God, that we shall not want. It is the Faith; the life we have in the Lord that keeps us from wanting. Christ, is our shepherd. Better than any Shepherd he gives us what we need, and makes sure we are sustained  Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit. Being sustained makes us not want. The life in Jesus we are given everything we need; everything our Catholic soul requires. 

     The whole Psalm 23 can be summed up into that- I shall not want because I am a sheep of the almighty shepherd. We are his sheep, by our Faith in him, by our life in him. It is the nourishment he offers that we are close to the shepherd. 

     So let us now leave this I want I want mentality and move to the almighty shepherd's care of I give I give. We are to give up everything -Thoughts, actions, soul, and body to the Lord. We are called to live the life of I give in this world of I wan. But in Christ, We shall not want.
