Psalm 23 (New International Version)
A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
4Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
As angry as I feel, I couldn't help but be reminded of the fact that Christ, God's Son, died for us. That God had to watch his son die. Jesus' dying wasn't right-it wasn't right that he was persecuted and then chosen to die over some thief. But it was right in the sense that it was God's plan because we needed a saviour. So as much Amber's death isn't right-I know that I need to trust God about this.
I'm no longer shaking or numb. It's more than real.
