The Lord is my Shepherd
I think to myself sometimes. What can I add to the lives of men in this forum?
I'm man, providing is in my basic man program. I don't think that providing is solely for woman hiding behind children to get an easy pass in existence.
In a healthy world ,providing for woman is a badge of contentment within life. It's not for me the apex.
The apex for me is to pursue the Narrow Road. The Narrow Road is a pursuit of peace. Peace with my creator. Peace with my neighbor, where my neighbor doesn't demand that I break peace with my Creator.
I can provide anyplace, anywhere, anytime. Those characteristics make me the enemy of tyrants everywhere.
Tyrants dictate where provisions go. Who provisions go too. Who is allowed to provision others. There is no rest within those people.
So here is where I get my renewal to continue providing peace without shame.
(A Psalm of David.) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
God Bless Brothers.
