Today, take a few minutes to breathe, literally. If you already know the beginning verses of the 23rd Psalm, then close your eyes and inhale deeply, swelling your chest with air. Do it loud enough to hear it. Then exhale loudly. Repeat it at least 3 times while meditating and slowly repeating the words in today's verse. Use it whenever you need it; it will replenish you. If you know the entire Psalm by heart, your task will be to actually say the verses s-l-o-w-l-y; because, many times we rush through the words without realizing that we are rushing through our own healing.
Here’s the idea:
Inhale deeply (hold), exhale: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.“
Inhale deeply (hold), exhale: “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.”
Inhale deeply (hold), exhale: “He leadeth me beside the still waters.”
Inhale deeply (hold), exhale: “He restores my Soul...”
This is how I begin my prayer time. Repeat the entire 23 Psalm until you truly feel it. It will replenish you. L.
