“Goodness and mercy.”

Psalm 23:6 (ESV)
6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Most people are more positively inclined but on the contrary to most people, and I find that I have very low self-esteem. I tend to speak to myself negatively and harshly. I need to speak into my life, positive thoughts purposefully. Each morning I wake and thank the Lord for another day, and then get busy, once I slow down and have time to myself, the negative thoughts come streaming in. I have so many regrets, and before I realize it, I have cut myself down to nothing. Now I need to pick myself up and keep reminding myself that “surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.” I have to purposefully stay focused on God’s word or me probably with fall into a deep depression.

Prayer
Lord God, thank you for the Psalms and thank You that I can stand on Your name “surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.” I cannot make it on my own, and I need You every day. In Jesus name, Amen.
