The Lord is My Shepherd is compilation of short story testimonies of how Psalm 23 comes alive in the personal life of the writer, Carolyn Booker-Pierce. These are real life incidents that confirm Christ Jesus as a being a good Shepherd who cares for his sheep, God's people. She tells of the incredible moment when she needed immediate help, and the Lord, her Shepherd, shows up and takes amazing care of her. Sometimes it seems like no one was there, but the Shepherd was always there. He was there to make sure there was a place to live, a job to go to, and healing when sickness or death threatens to take her life. When things seemed impossible, the Shepherd proved he knew how to take care of his sheep. Because the Lord is our Shepherd, Psalm 23 has personal meaning to a person in need, that is me.
