Restoring Waterfalls

He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
(Psalm 23:2,3 NASB)

He restores my soul.

Oh, how I love that! Oh, how I need that!

The word David uses for restore is shuwb (pronounced shoob). It also means turn back, return, come back, bring back, refresh, repair.

Who of us doesn’t need a little shuwb, a little restoration, and probably in every area of our lives?

We need relational restoration, financial restoration, spiritual, mental, physical, emotional, schedule, even motivational restoration.

The thing is, if we allow Him to restore our souls, every other area of our lives will be affected.

It has to start there, in the depths of the deep soul.

O my God, my soul is in despair within me….
Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; (Psalm 42)

Hmmm…waterfalls…and quiet waters…

Water from above cascading down, mingling and flowing into deep, still, quiet pools.

The thundering flood of Living Water poured into us quiets, stills, renews, revives.


Lord, we invite Your rivers of living water to fill our parched souls, that we may never thirst again.
